Behavior Consultations

At Furnetic, pet behavior consultations are used to determine causes of and potential management strategies for pet behavioral problems. Some common conditions the specialists at the Furnetic veterinary clinic treat include separation anxiety, fears and phobias, aggression, compulsive disorders, and house-soiling problems. In-depth behavior consultations include intensive history taking, exam and diagnosis, as well as behavior modification techniques and demonstrations. Behavior consultations also include 6 months of telephone and email follow up.


Basic behavior consultations: Do you have difficulty brushing your dog's teeth or trimming your cat's nails? Is your pet afraid of getting into a carrier or coming in for veterinary visits? If so, schedule a pet behavior modification appointment with one of our skilled veterinary technicians and they will work with you and your pet to demonstrate techniques to decrease your pet's stress and make procedures and exams more comfortable.

Pre-adoption/pre-purchase counseling: We offer pre-adoption/pre-purchase counseling to help you select a pet that best suits your home and lifestyle. During your 30 minute appointment, our veterinary staff can advise you on exercise and grooming needs, typical personality traits, and general health characteristics of your future companion. We will also discuss wellness care and training recommendations to help you get started on the right track to a happy relationship with your new pet.

Preparing your pet for the new baby: The arrival of a newborn is a major time of transition for both you and your furry companions. We offer veterinary counseling services to help your pet prepare for the arrival of your new baby and make this transition as smooth and low stress as possible.
