When your pet develops an unwanted behavior, you notice it quickly. Examples may include your dog acting out when you leave, your cat soiling a new rug or scratching a new piece of furniture, or perhaps your pet is just not acting like its normal, happy self. Dealing with these types of behavioral problems adds unwanted stress and anxiety into your life, and can threaten the loving bond that you have formed with your pet. In extreme cases, serious behavioral problems can lead to the decision to euthanize or to surrender the pet to a shelter.
Here at McClintock Animal Care Center we begin by consulting with you about your pet’s behavior. Being able to pinpoint when and how these behaviors began can have a dramatic effect on the overall outcome. This consultation will be followed by a thorough physical examination of your pet. In some cases, behavioral problems can actually be caused by medical conditions. Our team of veterinarians is experienced at diagnosing and addressing behavioral problems with an approach that combines clinical medicine, behavioral medicine, and training.
Our goal is to help pets and their owners live together comfortably and safely, and to help strengthen the bond between pets and their families. Scheduling an evaluation with one of our veterinarians is the first step. Before you and your pet suffer through one more day of behavioral concerns, contact us - let’s talk about how we can help.
