Your cat’s behavior affects every interaction you have with him or her every day. Behavior dictates everything from meal time, to play time, to downtime. When a cat has a behavior problem, the consequences are far-reaching and can threaten the bond you have with your cat by damaging the loving relationship that should exist between you. In extreme situations, a serious behavior problem can lead to euthanasia or surrender.
Cats can have a wide variety of behavioral issues, from litter box problems to severe anxiety and aggression issues. We are well qualified and experienced in diagnosing and addressing behavior problems with an approach that combines skills from veterinary clinical medicine and behavioral medicine. Our goals are to help cats and their owners live together comfortably and safely, and to help restore the bond between cats and their families.
Dealing with behavior problems can be frustrating for cat owners. Some cat owners may even blame themselves because their cat seems to have an emotional issue. Although behavior problems can result from emotional trauma or physical mistreatment, in many cases the problem can arise from simple misunderstandings or learned associations that were inadvertently established during training.
In addition, several medical conditions can look a lot like a behavior problem. Scheduling an evaluation our staff is the first step on the road to resolving the problem.
