Behavioral Counseling

Pets can make wonderful additions to the family, but when they exhibit unwanted behavior, it can be difficult to truly embrace them and form that all important human-animal bond. Over the years, we’ve worked with countless pet owners that adored their animals, but were at their wits’ end with one or two behaviors that were disrupting the peace within their home and standing in the way of them developing a loving relationship with their four-legged companions.

If this sounds like what you’re going through, you’re certainly not alone! More importantly, help is just a phone call away. Ocean Breeze Animal Hospital offers professional behavioral counseling services to help get your pet’s bad habits under control for good.

Animals act out for a number of reasons, and sometimes the bad behavior you see is merely a symptom of a larger problem. For instance, an otherwise well-behaved pet that becomes destructive while left alone may actually be suffering from separation anxiety. Additionally, some illnesses can have symptoms that mimic bad behavior. We’ll work with you and your companion to determine the cause of the negative behavior you’re dealing with, ruling out any possible medical causes, so we can determine the most effective course of action for overcoming that behavior once and for all.

Some of the behavioral problems we can assist with include:

  • House Training Problems
  • Aggression
  • Excessive Barking
  • Biting
  • Digging
  • Destructive Behavior
  • Chewing
  • Separation Anxiety
  • And More…

If you’re struggling with a negative pet behavior that is standing in the way of embracing your pet as the balanced, well-behaved member of the family you know he or she is capable of becoming, we can help. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and create a plan that will get real, permanent results.
