PET BEHAVIORAL COUNSELING
If your pet exhibits unusual and/or concerning behaviors, it is critical to first rule out an underlying medical cause. A cat who urinates outside the litter box, for example, may have a urinary tract infection. A dog who does not sleep through the night may have arthritis. All behavioral evaluations at Beaumont Animal Clinic begin with a physical examination, screenings, and laboratory tests, which may include a complete blood count, serum chemistry profile, thyroid screening, and urinalysis to rule out potential underlying health problems first. Our suggested tests will be based on your pet’s symptoms and overall health. If a medical disorder is discovered, we will discuss your pet’s treatment options with you.
If all tests are negative and there is no medical problem that could be causing the behavior change, we will recommend ways to mitigate unwanted behavior and may put you in contact with a trainer.
