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. Fortunately, the experienced team at Marina Village Veterinary is here to help restore peace and balance back into your home.
The secret to overcoming animal behavior issues is identifying the root problem. First, we must rule out any potential medical causes. Many medical conditions have symptoms that can mimic bad behavior. For instance, a cat that urinates outside the litter box may actually be experiencing a health issue as opposed to acting out.
With a clean bill of health in hand, the next step is determining the exact behavior we’re dealing with. This is crucial because in many cases, a bigger problem may manifest itself in smaller ways. For example, destructive behavior when left alone could actually be a symptom of separation anxiety. We’ll work with you to determine precisely what the situation is so we can address it in the most effective way.
Some of the behavior problems we can provide assistance with include:
Once we’ve reached a correct diagnosis, the final 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 behavior issue with a pet. Whether it’s positive reinforcement, rewards, training, or something else, we’ll work with you to develop a plan that gets results.
Don’t let unwanted behavior drive a wedge between you and your pet. Contact Marina Village Veterinary and let us help you enjoy the loving, peaceful relationship you both deserve.
