Is unwanted behavior making it difficult to bond with 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. Fortunately, the experienced team at Marina Village Veterinary is here to help restore peace and balance back into your home.

Understanding the Problem

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:

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

A Plan That Gets Results

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.

We love this vet. Every time we went we were treated very warmly and there was a lot of love for our two dogs while we visited. We felt in good hands with the staff here. Highly recommend as a primary care provider for your pets.

These are exceptional people! I cannot say enough good things about this vet and everyone working there. They are kind, loving, compassionate, and the very best at what they do, we have never let our Beloved Pugs go in the back of any vet except this one. I fully and completely trust every one of the staff members.

I was in search of a veterinary for a bandage change for my fur baby being a bit hesitant about going anywhere else but where he was previously checked at when his incident happened. Went on google and Marina Village Veterinary came up as my first choice, gave them a call and the receptionist was really informative about being seen at their office. I went ahead and filled out a form on their online website, that same day I was called back from the office and was giving an appointment the following day as well as instructions as to how their appointments work, etc. As I came into the office I was greeted and got checked in quickly. Not to mention that both receptionist in the front desk were very nice and helpful; they even offered me something to drink. Hours later since I dropped off my fur baby, Dr. Ashley gave me a call being really explanatory, patient, caring, very helpful and informative about my fur babys situation and what are the following steps for his on going recovery. I am very delighted and appreciative with the service I have been provided since the first time I gave this place a call. 100% recommended, Thank you so much Marina Village Veterinary!🤍😊
