Woodbridge Pet Behavior Counseling Even with the right training and lots of attention and love, your dog or cat can develop bad habits or unwanted behaviors. You, your family and your pet do not have to live with these problems. The experienced, knowledgeable staff at our Woodbridge animal hospital offers behavior counseling for many of your pet's problems, including inappropriate urination or defecation, urine marking, aggression, nipping and biting, separation anxiety, inappropriate chewing and barking, digging, chewing, and introduction of new pets into the household. Causes of behavior problems can be environmental, such as a schedule change or introduction of a new baby or pet; learned, as a result of unintentional positive reinforcement; or genetic. Furthermore, any painful disease or condition, or degenerative changes associated with aging, can cause or contribute to behavior problems. Addressing the underlying medical problem or providing pain relief, along with behavior modification techniques, can often resolve some of these problems. Our assessment begins with your pet's clinical history and a thorough medical examination. Before beginning behavior therapy, any medical problems that have been diagnosed will be treated.
