If your pet has developed a harmful or unpleasant behaviour, a consultation with your veterinarian will be very helpful. Your veterinarian will first check to see if there are any medical causes for your pet’s behaviour. They can advise you on how to make changes to your pet’s environment and training to avoid unwanted behaviours.
In some cases, medications and supplements may be prescribed. Our veterinarians can also recommend a good trainer/behaviourist who can work with you and your pet.
Some common behavioural issues we see include:
- Feather picking
- Inappropriate urination or defecation
- Fear, anxiousness and separation anxiety
- Destructive behaviours such as biting and scratching furniture
