Behavioral issues are something most pet owners face at one time or another. Sadly, they often create such frustration that it damages the bond between pet and person—behavioral problems are one of the most common reasons pets are surrendered or rehomed. At Mohnacky Animal Hospital, our team is experienced and educated about behavioral problems and can provide help through training suggestions, environmental changes at home, and medications if needed.
Some areas that we can help with include:
- Separation anxiety
- Destructive behavior
- Noise aversion
- Inappropriate elimination/litterbox issues
- Excessive barking
- Obsessive licking or chewing
- Pica/coprophagia(eating non-food substances)
It’s essential to first rule out a medical or physical cause for the behavior, especially if it’s a sudden change. Pets can’t tell you when something is wrong, and unwanted or inappropriate behavior could indicate a serious health problem. If you notice behavior changes or your pet is acting abnormally, please call us right away at (760) 758-8004 to schedule an appointment and let us help restore happiness to your home!
