Pet Behavioral Counseling
At Animal Clinic of Woodruff, we believe in treating the whole pet. This means helping pets have not just a healthy body, but a healthy spirit and healthy home life. That’s why our veterinarians and our vet care specialists at Animal Clinic of Woodruff offer pet behavioral counseling to help pet families identify and solve challenging behavior concerns.
Is your pet experiencing any of these problems?
- Excessive barking
- Anxiety (separation anxiety, or anxiety caused by other pets or people)
- Obsessive chewing, scratching, or destroying property
- Spraying (urinating in inappropriate places)
- House soiling
- Aggression (biting, snapping, growling, scratching, or hissing)
To keep pets healthy and families happy, we suggest pursuing treatment for any of these conditions right away. We can offer in-house pet behavior consulting. If needed, our staff can refer you and your dog or cat to board-certified behaviorists in the Spartanburg area. We keep a list of the many local obedience classes available, and we can recommend the ones most appropriate for your pet.
Additionally, pet behavior problems often can be triggered by health conditions. (For example, a pet’s excessive scratching or chewing at his skin may be due to allergies caused by food or the environment.) It's important to see a vet so that your pet can have a complete health check. Many times, treating the illness resolves the behavioral problem.
Don’t let concerns about your pet’s bad or strange behavior continue any longer. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Walden to receive caring treatment, advice, and recommendations to help calm, correct, and help your pets and your family.
