Is your pet displaying aggressive or unwanted behavior? Some negative behaviors can be addressed through training, while others may require a veterinary behaviorist’s approach. These behaviors harm your relationship with your pet as well as cause stress to everyone involved. Fortunately, at Day Heights Veterinary Clinic, we provide pet behavioral therapy in Clermont County to help manage behaviors such as dog aggression or cat anxiety. Your veterinarian can work with you to help improve your dog or cat’s behavior and restore peace to your household.
Is your pet exhibiting symptoms of anxiety or aggression? Call Day Heights Veterinary Clinic to schedule a behavioral consultation.
If your dog or cat is acting out, this can not only cause stress for you both, but also damage the bond you have with your pet. Our team is equipped to address certain behaviors including:
- Hostility toward other animals and people
- Destructive behaviors due to separation anxiety (e.g., ripping/chewing furniture)
- Anxiety/fear of loud noises, other people, or animals
- Urine marking in the house
- Nipping or play biting
- Excessive barking, whining, or meowing
- Aggression around food
- Eliminating in the house/going outside of the litterbox
With behavioral counseling, we strive to better understand and try to determine a reason for your pet’s behavior. They may be behaving poorly due to stress, boredom, fear or underlying health issues. When you bring your pet in for a behavioral consultation, your veterinarian will assess your pet’s health and discuss specific behaviors you’d like to us address.
Once we’ve evaluated your pet, your veterinarian will create a treatment plan: either using desensitization and counter-conditioning techniques or prescribing medication to manage their behavior.
