Veterinary ServicePet Behaviour & Training Consultations

If your pet exhibits strange and/or alarming behaviors, it is critical to first rule out an underlying medical cause. A cat who urinates outside the litter box, for example, may have a urinary tract infection. A dog who does not sleep through the night may have arthritis. All behavioral evaluations at ABC Veterinary Hospital Pacific Beach begin with a physical examination, screens, and laboratory testing, which may include a complete blood count, serum chemistry profile, thyroid screening, and urinalysis.

Pet Behaviour & Training Consultations in San Diego, CA

As your veterinarian, we want to be your first point of contact if you have any concerns about your pet’s behavior, and at ABC Veterinary Hospital Pacific Beach, our entire team is trained in diagnosing and treating common behavioral issues, as well as knowing when to refer on to a behavioral specialist if necessary.

Pet Behavior & Training Consultations

When a pet develops a behavioral problem at home, one of the most common things we hear from owners is that they want to hire a dog trainer. Dog trainers are a terrific resource; we have some fantastic ones here in San Diego. Nevaertheless, it is critical to distinguish between a behavioral issue and a training issue or whether both needs to be handled. Behavioral disorders, including clinical depression or anxiety, can be caused by aberrant brain function. These cannot be remedied alone by training. We must treat behavioral disorders like any illness, with remedies tailored to each instance.

Treatment plans for other behavioral disorders frequently entail behavior change and may incorporate medication-assisted training. If our physicians and technical staff cannot assist you with your pet’s behavior issue, we can refer you to a board-certified animal behavior specialist.
