Our behavioral consultations look at the bigger picture of your pet's sudden behavior change. We consult with you and ask questions to first determine if any medical issues are causing these certain behaviors. If they are, we work with you to get your pet the medical treatment he or she may need to get better. Then, we'll work directly with you to ensure healthy behaviors and tools are on the horizon. Consistency and patience can certainly lead to positive behavior changes if they are not caused by a medical issue.
Is your pet no longer acting as him or herself?

Our Hospital's Rave Reviews
Very pleased with first visit. Explained everything and took all the time I needed to answer all my new puppy mom questions. Provided reassurance, an understandable plan for follow up and suggestions. Staff very nice and explained things well so I knew what to expect. I appreciate being able to FaceTime during COVID restrictions. Knowledgeable care

Everyone was caring and informative. Took all the time we needed-not rushed. Patience and took time explaining things. Answered all my questions. Very good with my dog. Lily was very comfortable with them even though they were strangers to her.
