What is behavioural consultation for pets?

A behavioural consultation is a specialized service aimed at understanding and addressing your dog or cat’s behavioural issues. Our team of experts will work closely with you and your pet to identify the root cause of the problem and design a tailored treatment plan. Whether your pet is struggling with anxiety, aggression, or other behavioural concerns, our consultations are designed to bring about positive changes in their behaviour and enhance their overall quality of life.

How can a behavioural consultation benefit my pet?

A behavioural consultation can have a profound impact on your pet's well-being. By addressing behavioural issues, we can help improve their relationship with you and other family members, as well as with other pets. Behavioural problems can often lead to stress and discomfort for pets, and addressing these issues can lead to reduced anxiety and a happier, more confident pet. Additionally, resolving behavioural issues can prevent potential risks and accidents, ensuring a safer environment for both your pet and your family. Examples of those who may benefit from a behavioural consultation would include pets experiencing:

  • General fear and/or anxiety
  • Noise phobias
  • Reactivity, fear, and aggression towards people or other pets
  • Separation anxiety
  • Inappropriate urination and much more!

What can I expect during a behavioural consultation?

Our experts will conduct a thorough assessment of your pet's behaviour, medical history, and living environment. This comprehensive evaluation allows us to gain insight into the specific triggers and factors contributing to your pet's behavioural challenges. Based on this assessment, we will develop a personalized treatment plan, which may include behaviour modification techniques, training exercises, and, if necessary, the use of medication in collaboration with our veterinary team.
