Behavioral Medicine...  

Behavioral problems are the number one reason that pets are surrendered to shelters in the United States. House soiling, nuisance barking, separation anxiety, territorial aggression, thunderstorm anxiety -- the list is endless.

The first step in controlling these issues is understanding the “what and why” of each situation. Proper diagnosis dispels myths in behavior. It is common for a pet owner to assume that their pet is just being spiteful when in fact they may have a behavioral problem. We have successfully treated a wide variety of small animal behavioral issues, and we are ready to help you.

We strive to help our clients learn the real reasons for their pets behavior. After a thorough physical exam, our doctor here will work with you to determine the root cause of your animal’s behavior, and outline a treatment strategy. Occasionally, medications are needed to help augment behavioral training. And, when outside help is needed, we can put you in touch with local animal trainers and even board-certified veterinary behaviorists who can help you work through even the most difficult cases.
