We provide a variety of counseling services according to your pet’s needs. If your pet is struggling with their weight or exhibiting unusual behaviors, our veterinarians can provide extra help that goes beyond medical treatment. Please contact us to schedule a counseling visit as we understand how frustrating these problems can become. Our veterinary team believes it’s sometimes necessary for diagnostic tests to ensure these problems aren’t a result of a medical condition. Remember, pet supply stores may offer suggestions for treating the symptoms, but we want to diagnose any problems and be able to advise you to solve the problem.

Behavioral Counseling

Is your pet exhibiting unusual behaviors, such as accidental soiling, anxiety, aggression, or chewing? If you see your pet doing something that is out of character, this may be a sign of an underlying medical problem. Our veterinarians will examine your pet to rule out medical conditions before making recommendations about behavioral modifications.

Our team will work closely with you to make sure that you understand training techniques for modifying unwanted behaviors. In extreme cases, we can refer to specialists for help as well.

Nutritional Counseling

Did you know that more than 50% of pets are considered overweight? Some of these weight problems are a result of improper diet, but some are caused by legitimate medical conditions. We can provide diagnostic testing to help determine if this is the case with your pet. We offer dietary recommendations for our patients and we can provide a number of therapeutic prescription diet options if needed. Diet is so important for our pets and we are here to provide nutritional advice for all stages of your pet’s life.
