Behavior problems can be due to medical or behavioral causes, or both. A clinical history, physical examination, and diagnostic testing will help determine if there are underlying medical conditions contributing to the problem.
Although there may be a single cause for a behavior problem, it is often the combined effect of the environment and learning on the pet’s mental and physical health that determines behavior.
After evaluation, our veterinarians can help coach you on a behavior modification plan, as well as recommend daily or as needed behavior medications.
If needed, we may refer you to a board-certified veterinary behavior specialist.
