Behavioral Consultation Services

Behavioral Consultation

The behavior of your pet plays an important role in determining his or her acceptance in the society. How your animal companion interacts with others, both at home and outside, determines how others perceive him or her.

But what if, suddenly overnight and without warning, your furry friend starts acting out? While this shift in your pet’s behavior may seem to have “no reason,” the reason is often associated changes in his or her overall health and wellbeing.

We recommend you not to be harsh on your pet for any unexpected changes in his/her behavior and to contact our Burlington animal hospital immediately if your furry companion experiences a rapid and sudden shift in his or her normal behavior.

If your pet has started to display the following sudden behaviors, it could be a sign that he or she is suffering from an underlying condition:

  • Urinating indoors
  • Lack of interest in favorite toys or activities
  • Loss of balance
  • Ignoring basic commands
  • Easily startled
  • Acting restless
  • Changes in appetite and water consumption
  • Excessive sleeping
  • Aggression

We Can Help

If your suspect any changes in your pet’s behavior, please call our vets for a behavioral consultation. We can help determine the underlying cause of your pet’s unexplained behaviors, and will work with you to address the root cause, whatever it may be.

If we determine that your pet’s behavior is not due to a health concern, we will refer you to a behavior specialist to work on finding out the cause and addressing the issue.
