Pet Behavior

Dog in Sun

Haines Road Animal Hospital veterinarians and technicians are experienced and educated about pet behavior problems and can provide help through training suggestions, environmental changes at home, and potentially prescribe medications to help calm your pet and facilitate other behavioral modification training.

Pet Behavior Issues We Treat

Some typical behavior issues that we can help you with include:

  • Separation anxiety
  • Noise aversion
  • Inappropriate elimination/litterbox issues
  • Excessive barking
  • Obsessive licking/lick granulomas
  • Chewing
  • Pica/Coprophagia
  • Aggression/Irritability

Initially, it’s always important to rule out a medical or physical cause for the behavior, especially if it is a sudden change. Pets can’t tell you when something is wrong, so the behavior could be the symptom of a serious health problem. If you notice your pet acting abnormally you should schedule an appointment with us as soon as possible.
