Behavioural Medicine

Behavioural medicine focuses on the physical and emotional health of domestic animals so they can determine the cause of a behavioural problem.

Overview

Behavioural medicine focuses on the physical and emotional health of domestic animals. If we can determine the cause of the behavioural problem (whether due to physical pain or other), we can create a treatment plan to get you and your pet back onto a normal routine.

The types of conditions your veterinarian may be able to help with are: fears and anxiety, aggression, bathroom accidents, compulsive or repetitive behaviours, cognitive dysfunction, basic manners, and socialization.

If your pet is behaving in an undesirable way or you believe your pet's behaviour puts them or others at risk, then you should consider seeing a veterinarian.

How is my pet cared for during behavioural medicine therapy?
