Behavioral Consultation

Behavioral Consultation

Behavior issues are something most pet owners face at one time or another and, sadly, they can create so much frustration they break the bond between pet and person. At New Smyrna Beach Animal Medical Center, our veterinarians and technicians are experienced in handling behavior problems and can provide help through training suggestions, environmental changes at home, and potentially prescribe medications to help calm your pet and facilitate other behavioral modification training.

Some typical behavior issues we can help you with include:

  • Separation anxiety
  • Noise aversion
  • Inappropriate elimination/litterbox issues
  • Excessive barking
  • Obsessive licking/lick granulomas
  • Chewing
  • Pica/Coprophagia
  • Aggression/Irritability

It’s always important to rule out a medical or physical cause for the behavior, especially if it is a sudden change. Pets can’t tell you when something is wrong, so the behavior could be the symptom of a serious health problem. If you notice your pet acting abnormally, please schedule an appointment with us as soon as possible.
