Behavioural advice

Behavioural issues can cause tremendous problems for the people and other pets living with a problem pet. There are many reasons why behavioural issues can ensue; some are medical issues that need to be treated by our veterinary surgeons whilst others may be in response to changes in the household, for example, moving to a new house or the arrival of a new baby. Age-related diseases, for example, poor mobility and decreased sight and smell may lead to a pet’s temperament becoming irritable.

It is important to seek the advice of a veterinary surgeon before embarking on behavioural modification techniques. It may be necessary to do further testing after an initial examination. Tests that may be appropriate include blood tests, urine analyses, x-rays, ultrasound or even a referral to a neurologist for further investigation such as a MRI brain scan.

If the problem is found to be purely behavioural in origin, then advice will be given and if the problem requires a referral to a behaviouralist, then we can organise an appropriate referral to a company we work alongside called Pets In Partnership, led by a veterinary nurse that has specialised in dog training and behavioural advice.
