When good behaviour goes bad
Has your pet always been well behaved but all of a sudden things have changed?
Has toilet training gone out the window?
Is your dog suddenly digging up the garden or barking non stop?
Is your cat clawing at your favourite piece of furniture?
Behavioural problems in our pets are very common and they can begin at any point during your pet’s life.
This is where a medical examination with us is absolutely essential. For example, if your pet is suddenly urinating in the house, we need to rule out medical problems such as a urinary tract infection or urinary incontinence.
Perhaps your dog has started growling at you when he is picked up – have you thought that your dog might be in pain due to the onset of arthritis?
If your pet’s behaviour has gone to the dogs you should arrange an appointment with us as soon as possible so we can get to the bottom of the problem. If we are able to rule out any medical problems we have plenty of tools up our sleeve to help treat and manage behavioural issues.
If you want to improve your pet’s behaviour, start by giving us a call on 6241 3333. We also have information on our website.
