Nutritional and Behavioral Counseling
Questions on both nutritional and pet behaviors are very important, but often overlooked. Faulkner Animal Hospital is ready to be your partner in making sure that your dog or cat is on a healthy diet and a good citizen at home.
Can we help with nutrition or behavior issues?
Behavior issues can be a sign of your pet's health. If he or she has developed a behavior that you find bothersome (or your pet isn’t quite acting like themselves), we encourage you to give us a call.
Examples of behavior that warrants an examination from a veterinarian are:
- Anxiety, aggression, or noise/storm phobias
- Marking, house-soiling, or house-training issues
- Sleep disorders
- Repetitive or over-grooming behaviors
- Chasing tail and shadows
- Excessive barking or meowing
- Chewing, scratching, or property destruction
Once the underlying issue of your pet's behavior problem is found, pet behavior can change with consistency and patience. You are not alone if your pet struggles with a behavioral issue, and we want to help so that you have a happy and healthy relationship for many years to come.
