If you’ve ever been in a situation where you can’t control your pet’s behaviour, then they may benefit from behavioural counselling. Bad habits or actions can result in dangerous situations for your pet and others in the area. It’s better to get a veterinarian’s help when trying to curb their problems. During a consultation our team will first ensure that the behaviour doesn’t stem from a health problem. Sometimes pain can cause your pet to exhibit odd behaviours. Once we’ve established their behaviour isn’t medically related, we create a plan to provide you with the tools on how to manage problematic behaviours.
How do I know if my pet needs behavioural counselling?
It may be time to consider counselling if you can no longer effectively manage your pet’s actions. Counselling is necessary if your pet’s behaviour becomes dangerous to themselves, other pets or humans.
What are some bad behaviours to look out for in a pet?
Don’t hesitate to consult with a veterinarian if you notice one of the following in your furry friend:
1. Aggressive towards loved ones or other pets
2. Loss of appetite
3. Excessive peeing
4. Unexpectedly scratching, biting or growling
5. Excessive licking, hiding and pacing
