It’s easier to prevent bad habits than it is to break them. Behavioural counselling can help you learn new tricks to manage your pet’s behaviour before it becomes disruptive. With the help of our veterinarians, we can find the source of their behaviour and find healthy solutions to fix the problem. To book an appointment for a behavioural counselling session for your pet, call us at 403-457-3911.
What are the benefits of behavioural counselling?
All pets can benefit from behavioural counselling, not just those that misbehave. We help teach your furry companions healthier ways to communicate what they are feeling. Our veterinarians can determine the reason for their behaviour, which sometimes can result from an underlying health issue. As a pet owner, you can benefit from these sessions too. Learning techniques on how to manage your pet’s behaviour and how to create a healthier environment could be the trick to a happier and healthier home for both of you.
How do I know if my pet needs behavioural counselling?
Every pet has their own unique personality. But you may notice some changes to how they usually behave. If their behaviour becomes difficult to manage, we recommend seeking professional help. Some common behavioural issues pets may exhibit include:
- Aggression towards other people or animals
- Anxiety or pacing
- Hiding or whining
- Peeing or soiling the house
- Excessive licking or scratching
- Excessive barking or growling
