For many pet owners, the individual personality of their pet is what makes them such a great companion. We understand that when pets have behavioural problems, it can affect the quality of life of the pet, as well as being stressful to the owner.

Common behavioural issues include:

  • Separation anxiety
  • Reactivity to other dogs or people
  • Aggression
  • Storm phobias
  • Hyperactivity
  • Anxiety about being handled or visiting the vet

An extended consultation with a veterinarian is essential in understanding the history, causes and available treatment for behavioural issues.

The most effective way to manage behavioural issues is through a combination of behavioural management and modification techniques tailored to the unique needs of your pet. In some cases, medication may be prescribed by your veterinarian to carefully treat and manage your pet’s behavioural issues. Our veterinary team also works closely alongside a number of qualified dog training professionals who are able to work with us in developing a treatment plan for your pet.
