Behavioral Counseling

Is unwanted behavior making it difficult to bond with your pet?

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

Understanding the Problem

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

Once we’ve got a clean bill of health, the next step is determining the exact behavior we’re dealing with. This is critical because in many cases, a bigger problem may manifest itself in smaller ways. For instance, destructive behavior when left alone may actually be a symptom of separation anxiety. We’ll work with you to pinpoint precisely what the situation is so we can address it most effectively.

Some of the behavior problems we can assist with include:

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

A Plan That Gets Results

With a proper diagnosis in hand, the last step is developing a strategy for conquering the behavior problem once and for all. There are a variety of ways to approach a behavior issue. Whether it’s positive reinforcement, rewards, training or something else, we’ll work with you to customize a plan that gets results.

Don’t let unwanted behavior stand in the way of bonding with your furry family member. Give Kanuga Animal Clinic a call and let us help you enjoy the loving, peaceful relationship you both deserve.
