Pet Behavioral Counseling from your Vista, CA Veterinarian
Unfortunately, one of the most common, frustrating problems experienced by pet owners are behaviorally associated. These concerns can start at any age and can significantly affect the quality of life of both the pets as well as their owners. Our staff can be the first line of defense to help prevent or suppress these behavior disorders. Simple problems can be discussed during routine appointments, but more difficult disorders will require a behavioral appointment, which is a longer in-depth appointment.
Our doctors are not behavioral specialists but are trained to rule out the possibility of a medical condition that could be contributing to the misbehavior. They can discuss possible solutions and if needed, prescribe supplements or medications that are often required to control certain conditions.
Should the problem require a veterinary behavior specialist or trainer, we can direct you to trusted specialists in our area
