Behavior Training Enhances the Human–Animal Bond

Conejo Valley Veterinary Hospital

Our veterinary team is experienced in diagnosing problems that may respond to behavior training. Some problem behaviors are related to medical ailments, such as a friendly dog becoming aggressive due to undiagnosed pain, an aging pet that refuses to respond to commands due to increasing deafness, or a cat that inappropriately urinates due to a urinary tract infection.

All abnormal behaviors should be considered significant enough to discuss with us. We can then determine whether or not it is medical versus truly behavioral in etiology. If medical reasons for the abnormal behavior have been ruled out, we may suggest certain behavioral modifications or will refer you to a behaviorist.

Behavior problems can be directed at strangers, owners, or other animals.  Examples of behavior problems commonly seen in small animals:

  • Inappropriate elimination
  • Fireworks or thunderstorm phobia
  • Separation anxiety
  • Excessive barking
  • Other nuisance behaviors

If your pet exhibits abnormal or unwanted behaviors, please do not hesitate to call us for direction and guidance.
