Behavioral Counseling

Often the problem we see with our pets has nothing to do with a physical ailment but it is behavioral. Some behavioral problems can be so serious that they threaten the life of the pet when a frustrated or fearful pet owner can no longer cope with the difficult or aggressive actions of their pet and are considering euthanasia.

Veterinarians are well trained in pet behavior and are prepared to counsel and teach pet owners on how to treat their pet's fear, anxiety or aggression based problems. At times medications may even be prescribed as part of the treatment protocol.

The most important visit you will have at the Doerr Animal Clinic in with your young puppies first visit usually at 6 weeks of age. We spend time teaching you the right to rear your pup in order to best prevent behavior problems later. What you do, and how you handle the young dog (6-17 weeks of age) is most important in developing his personality forever.
