Here in the United States, behavior issues are one of the major reasons pets are relinquished at shelters. Behavior related problems include but are not limited to aggression, excessive barking, food-guarding, house soiling or inappropriate urination, separation anxiety, and noise phobia. Our veterinarians will sit down with you and your pet and discuss your pet’s behavior issues and their management before they get out of hand. Oftentimes there is an underlying medical problem leading to the undesired behavior which we will try to identify and treat. Sometimes all it may take is behavior or environmental modifications or training. Other more serious cases may require the help of behavior medications. Other yet more serious issues may require consultation with a professional trainer or behavior specialist. You can count on us at Pet Point Animal Hospital to work with you to get your pet the necessary help.
