Whether it’s a basic house training issue or something more serious, like aggression, unwanted pet behavior can be stressful for everyone. The experienced team at Royal Oaks Veterinary Hospital can help restore peace and balance back into your home.
The key to overcoming animal behavior issues lies in identifying the problem. First, we must rule out any potential medical causes. Many health conditions have symptoms that can be mistaken for bad behavior. For instance, a cat that urinates outside the litter box may not be acting out, but actually be experiencing a medical issue.
Once we’ve got a clean bill of health, the second step is pinpointing the precise behavior we’re dealing with. This is essential because in many cases, a bigger problem may 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 exactly what the situation is so we can address it most effectively.
Some of the 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 different ways we can approach a pet behavior issue. Whether it’s positive reinforcement, rewards, training or something else, we’ll work with you to customize a plan that gets results.
