Is negative behavior making it difficult to bond with your pet?
Whether it’s a simple house training issue or something more serious, like aggression, unwanted pet behavior can be frustrating for everyone. The experienced team at Lansdowne Animal Hospital can help restore peace and balance back into your home.
Understanding the Problem
The key to overcoming animal behavior issues is isolating the problem. First, we must rule out any potential medical causes. Many ailments have symptoms that can be misinterpreted as bad behavior. For instance, a cat that urinates outside the litter box may not be acting out, but instead experiencing a health issue.
With clean bill of health, the next step is pinpointing the behavior we’re dealing with. This is critical because in many cases, a bigger problem may manifest itself in smaller, less obvious 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 concerns we can provide assistance with include:
• House training
• Excessive barking
• Destructive behavior
A Plan That Gets Results
With a correct diagnosis in hand, the final 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 customize a plan that gets results.
Don’t let unwanted behavior stand in the way of bonding with your four-legged friend. Contact Lansdowne Animal Hospital and let our team help you enjoy the loving, peaceful relationship you both deserve.
