Is unwanted behavior driving a wedge between you and your pet?

Whether it’s something as simple as a house training issue or a more serious concern, like aggression, unwanted pet behavior can be stressful for everyone. The team at Lapel Animal Clinic can help restore peace and balance back into your home.

Understanding the Problem

The key to conquering animal behavior issues is identifying the problem. First, we must rule out any potential medical causes. Many ailments have symptoms that can mimic bad behavior. For instance, a cat that urinates outside the litter box may not be acting out, but actually be experiencing a health issue.

Once we’ve issued a clean bill of health, the next step is pinpointing the behavior we’re dealing with. This is important 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 precisely what the situation is so we can address it most effectively.

Some of the behavior issues we can provide assistance with include:

  • House training
  • Excessive barking
  • Jumping
  • Digging
  • Biting
  • Destructive behavior
  • Aggression
  • Fear/anxiety

A Plan That Gets Results

With an accurate diagnosis in hand, the next step is developing a strategy for overcoming the behavior problem once and for all. There are a number of different ways to approach a behavior issue. Whether it’s positive reinforcement, rewards, training or something else, we’ll work with you to develop a customized plan that gets results.

Don’t let unwanted behavior stand in the way of bonding with your pet. Call Lapel Animal Clinic and let us help you enjoy the loving, peaceful relationship you both deserve.
