Since behavior problems are one of the most common reasons that pets are re-homed, we have now begun offering Behavior Consults. These consults can help owners navigate through behavior issues by first identifying the problem(s) and then planning the best way to move forward.
This assessment may include:
- Complete Medical Workup
- Extended Behavior Consults
- Discussing training and changes in the home
- Referral to a veterinary board certified behaviorist
Extended behavior specific appointments are meant to address these issues at a deeper level that cannot be fully explored during a regular exam. For this reason, these appointments are longer than a typical appointment and require that we receive your completed Behavior Assessment Form 48 hours in advance.
Many behavior problems respond successfully through behavior modification techniques, changes in the environment and pet handling, and, in some cases, the use of drug therapies.
For more information or to schedule your appointment, please give us a call at (215) 949-1010.
