Behavioral Consultation for Cats & Dogs
Your pet's behavior can be an important diagnostic tool. At Rea Road Animal Hospital, we understand that your pet's behavior is one way he or she can communicate.
If your pet begins to show destructive or aggressive behaviors, your pet might be in pain or this can be a sign of anxiety, a joint problem, or other systemic issues. Your pet's veterinarian will work with you to determine the cause of these new undesirable behaviors. We may refer you to specialists who are experts in pet training and behavior problems. Sometimes pets need medicine to help them be their best. For certain problems, such as fear of thunderstorms or anxiety, we may prescribe medication.
We recommend training your pet early to prevent problems in the future. Puppy socialization classes can help your new pet start on the right foot by showing you how to use basic commands, skills in problem solving, and socialization. You can also learn about communicating with your dog as well as what to expect during early development.
