Behavioral Counseling

Is unwanted behavior driving a wedge between you and your furry family member?

Whether it’s a simple house training issue or something more serious, like aggression, unwanted pet behavior can be stressful for everyone. The experienced team at Omaha Animal Medical Group is here to help restore peace and balance back into your home.

Understanding the Problem

The key to overcoming behavior problems is identifying the root cause. To do this, we must first rule out any potential medical causes. That’s because many ailments have symptoms that can be mistaken for bad behavior. For instance, a cat that urinates outside the litter box may not be acting out, but actually be experiencing a health issue.

Once we’ve established a clean bill of health, the next step is pinpointing the precise behavior we’re dealing with. This is critical because in many situations, a bigger problem may manifest itself in smaller ways. For example, destructive behavior when left alone may actually be a sign of an underlying case of separation anxiety. We’ll work with you to determine exactly what the issue is so we can address it most effectively.

Some common behavior problems our experienced team can provide assistance with include:

  • House training
  • Excessive barking
  • Jumping
  • Digging
  • Biting
  • Destructive behavior
  • Aggression
  • Fear/anxiety

A Plan That Gets Results

With a proper diagnosis in hand, the last step is developing a strategy for conquering the behavior problem once and for all. There are a variety of different ways we can approach a behavior issue. Whether it’s positive reinforcement, rewards, training or something else, we’ll work with you to develop a customized plan that gets results.

Don’t let unwanted behavior stand in the way of bonding with your four-legged friend. Contact Omaha Animal Medical Group and let us help you enjoy the loving, peaceful relationship you both deserve.
