Behavioral

Behavior is an integral part of a pet's health and well being.  Genetics, upbringing, training, experiences as well as medical issues can all effect your pet's behavior.

Humane Societies across the country are full of animals that have been surrendered because of undesirable behavior issues.

Because behavior can be intertwined with your pet's health, before any behavior consultation, your pet will have a thorough examination, blood work and urinalysis to rule out physiological changes that can be corrected with appropriate medical therapy.
