Whether it’s a basic house training issue or something more serious, like aggression, unwanted pet behavior can be stressful for everyone involved. Fortunately, the experienced team at The Corner Vet is here to help restore peace and balance back into your home.
The first step to overcoming animal behavior issues is accurately identifying the problem. To start, we must rule out any potential medical causes. Many ailments have symptoms that can mimic bad behavior. For instance, a cat that urinates outside the litter box may not be misbehaving, but actually be experiencing a health issue.
Once we’ve established a clean bill of health, the second step is determining the exact behavior we’re dealing with. This is crucial because in many cases, a bigger problem can manifest itself in smaller ways. For example, destructive behavior when left alone may actually be a sign of separation anxiety. We’ll work with you to determine precisely what the situation is so we can address it most effectively.
Some of the animal behavior problems we can assist with include:
With a proper diagnosis in hand, the last step is developing a strategy for overcoming the behavior problem once and for all. There are a number of ways we can approach a behavior issue. Whether it’s positive reinforcement, training, rewards or something else, we’ll work with you to create a customized plan that gets results.
