Yes! When you take a comprehensive approach and think about the whole animal, medical, behavioral and motivational needs, we can move the needle on any behavior problem.  Almost always, we can get them to improve to a point where their quality of life, as well as their families’ lives are safe, comfortable and behaviorally healthy.

All of these types of problems respond well to behavior consultation.

Aggression: Growling, Barking, and Biting behavior directed at people (family members, strangers or your veterinarian) or other animals

Fear: Avoidance, panic and phobias (most commonly noises or thunder)

Anxiety: Separation from owners or other pets leading to elimination issues, barking or destruction

Inappropriate elimination in the house (cats or dogs)

Repetitive, stereotypic, and compulsive behaviors  (often times this includes behavior of unknown origin that the owner or the veterinarian doesn’t understand)

Hyperactivity, Learning disabilities, inability to form new memories (even when related to known  traumatic injury)

Inappropriate ingestion disorders (excessive eating or drinking, swallowing inedible items, previous history of gastrointestinal-obstruction)
