Pet behaviour consults
Your pet is an important part of the family, and so when they encounter behavioural issues it can be extremely stressfull for both the furry and two-legged members of the family! At the Ark we are dedicated to ensuring the wellbeing of both our patients and their owners. You can book an Behavioural consult with dr. Joe by clinking on the button below.
Behavioural problems in pets may be related to medical problems. We will exclude these by obtaining a full history and conducting a full physical examination. Blood and urine tests may be necessary to ensure there is no underlying medical condition. A full behavioral questionnaire is completed to help determine the underlying cause of the problem. Treatment is often based around three strategies. These are:
- managing the environment
- using protocols to modify the behaviour
- and often medication .
To achieve success it is essential that all members of the household be committed to be consistent in their interaction to their pet.
We offer a four week puppy preschool to allow early socialization of your pet. Puppies learn most of behaviour by the age of 16 weeks so it is important to start early with the training of your pet. Our experienced trainers will guide you through this critical stage. If you want to read more about puppies or our puppy course click here.
