Walton Way Veterinary Clinic is ready to provide practical, compassionate pet behavioral counseling. If your pet has issues with excessive barking, chewing, spraying, scratching, digging, aggression, or potty accidents in the house, we can evaluate your pet’s behavior, identify the source of the actions, and offer possible solutions.

There are several reasons why your pet may be displaying unwanted behavior. Is your pet in pain? Has your pet had to adapt to a new situation at home, such as a recent relocation, a new person in the household, or an altered schedule? Through a review of your pet’s clinical history, a medical exam, and answers that you provide to a series of questions, our veterinarians will try to understand what is causing the inappropriate behavior and how we can help. We will determine whether your pet is acting out due to medical reasons, anxiety, a genetic predisposition, or learned unwanted behavior.

We’re Here to Help You Both

Once an explanation for the behavior has been established, our knowledgeable veterinarians can recommend whether medical treatment, anxiety medicine, or sessions with a professional trainer are the best solutions for your pet’s problems. Behavioral issues can be one of the most frustrating issues to deal with in a pet, and we’ll work with and listen to you to find the best solutions for your pet and your family.

Left untreated, bad behavior can have serious consequences, such as property damage, angry neighbors, frustration, and headaches. Rather than letting inappropriate behavior affect your relationship with your pet and possibly lead to surrendering them, schedule a counseling appointment with the Walton Way Veterinary Clinic professionals for sound advice. We’re ready to find solutions that will help the whole family.
