Behavioural Issues in Dogs & Cats

Just like people, every one of our companions has a unique personality! Nonetheless, bad behaviours that may be cute during puppy or kittenhood can develop into serious issues as they get older.

There are so many reasons why pets can display abnormal or problematic behaviours. These can include age, environment, diet, and social life. While external factors can contribute to behavioural issues, sometimes there are cases where physiological factors, such as illness or disease, can be the cause.

This is where our Grande Prairie veterinary tream can help. Behaviour consultations can help our team determine if health issues may be contributing to their misbehaviour, and how to effectively manage them. Each consultation can be tailored to address your pet's specific issues, teaching both you and your four-legged friend the skills you need to live in harmony.

What to Expect During a Behaviour Consultation

During your consultation, our veterinarians will spend quality time getting to know you and your dog or cat. They will observe your pet’s behaviour and analyze their behavioural history. They may also run diagnostic tests to determine if your pet's behaviour might have a physiological cause.

After the consultation, and once test results have been received, we will:

  • Discuss the diagnosis and treatment plans with you.
  • Discuss certain behaviour modification techniques that are suited to your pet.
  • Discuss follow-up recommendations based on you and your pet’s needs.

At your consultation, you will have the opportunity to ask our veterinarians any questions you might have.

Benefits of Behaviour Consultations for Pets

Some dogs and cats develop undesirable or troublesome behaviours, such as house soiling, unwanted barking, digging, spraying, dominance, aggression, stress, or anxiety. Time with a professional veterinarian can help to uncover the individual 'quirks' and personality traits of your particular pet and they can give you the tools you need to help stop these behaviours.

There are a number of potential benefits to behaviour consulting for pets, including:
