The Importance of Behavioral Counseling

Behavioral problems are the number one cause of pets ending up in local shelters. It is the goal of our veterinarians and staff to prevent this from continuing by providing behavioral counseling and referrals when necessary.

What Happens during a Behavioral Counseling Session?

The most important step that will take place during your behavioral counseling session will be an evaluation of your pet, their schedule, and their behavior types. This evaluation will help to determine whether there are any underlying health concerns that could be causing poor behavior patterns. Taking a look at your pet’s schedule – and your own schedule – will help to determine whether your pet is misbehaving as a result of preventable causes such as boredom. Lastly, a look at type of misbehavior your pet exhibits will help to determine why they may be acting that way.

Solutions to the Problem

If our vets determine that intervention is needed from a professional animal behaviorist or trainer, we’ll provide the name of a board-certified specialist. In these circumstances, we always recommend that you follow up with the specialist referred to you as soon as possible to set your pet up for success.

Not all poor behavioral patterns will require professional intervention. In some cases, all that is required to get your pet on the right track is a slight change in your schedule or pharmaceutical intervention for a medical condition.
