Common Pet Behavioral Issues
There are many common types of behavior issues in pets, with aggression being among the most common. Dogs especially can become possessive of certain items or even of people, which can create a dangerous situation around other people or pets.
Anxiety-related behavior issues are also common in pets. For pets with separation anxiety, for example, your pet may destroy furniture or other objects when you're away from home. A cat may even display signs of anxiety by having litter box issues, such as going outside of the box.
How Our Houston, TX Animal Hospital Can Help
Behavior counseling from our Houston, TX animal hospital involves first determining the underlying cause of your pet's unwanted behavior. From there, we can begin to develop a plan for helping your pet overcome these behaviors through any number of exercises and techniques, including positive reinforcement, crate training (for dogs), and much more. Our experienced veterinary team can create a custom-tailored behavior therapy program to suit your specific needs.
You will also need to get heavily involved in your pet's behavior therapy. This will mean taking time out of your day to work with your pet on their behaviors and underlying issues. There is no determining exactly how long it will take for your pet to overcome the behaviors, but if you work diligently and have some patience with your pet along the way, you will see progress.
And of course, throughout the process, our veterinary team is always here to help by answering any questions or addressing any concerns you may have.
