Behavioural Counselling

Strange behaviours in your pet should not be taken lightly. About 15% of pets have behaviour issues. Trying to train your pet on your own can make you feel hopeless. This is why our team offers behavioural counselling. We want to help you get your cherished pet to their best self.

How can I tell if my pet needs behavioural counselling?

We recommend counselling when a pet’s behaviour has potential to be dangerous. If your pet’s actions puts themselves, other pets or humans in harm’s way, then they may benefit from behavioural counselling. All unnatural habits should be evaluated by a veterinarian.

What are signs my pet needs behavioural counselling?

Behaviour problems in your pet may manifest themselves in different ways. When they are anxious or annoyed their actions can range from mild to dangerous. Some habits to look out for are:

  1. Soiling the house
  2. Hiding
  3. Excessive barking
  4. Whining, pacing or panting
  5. Licking themselves excessively until fur comes off

If your pet is displaying any of these signs it needs to be looked into. These signs may also be indicative of other health issues, which is why you need a veterinarian to diagnose them.
