Whether it’s something basic like a house training issue or a more serious concern, like aggression, unwanted pet behavior can be stressful for everyone. The experienced team at Animal Care Center of Carters Creek can help restore peace and balance back into your home.
The secret to overcoming animal behavior issues is identifying the problem. First, we must rule out any potential medical causes. Many health problems feature symptoms that can be mistaken for bad behavior. For example, a cat that eliminates 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 behavior we’re dealing with. This is essential because in many instances, 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 determine precisely what the situation is so we can address it most effectively.
Some of the behavior issues we can provide assistance with include:
With a definitive diagnosis in hand, the next step is developing a strategy for overcoming the behavior problem once and for all. There are a variety of different ways we can approach a behavior issue. Whether it’s positive reinforcement, rewards, training or something else, we’ll work with you to create a customized plan that gets results.
Don’t let unwanted pet behavior stand in the way of bonding with your furry family member. Give us a call and let us help you enjoy the loving, peaceful relationship you both deserve.
