When it comes to understanding why our pets do what our pets do, we all tend to scratch our heads even more than our pets themselves do – in total confusion!

Pet behavior is a topic of mystery and sometimes consternation among many pet owners.

Understanding and dealing with problem behavior has been the focus of a great deal of research in the veterinary field. At the Chastain Veterinary Medical Group, our doctors and nurses are experienced enough to offer behavioral counseling and answers to many of your questions about your pet’s behavior.

We understand the importance of pets integrating well into each family. We focus on pets and their families living together comfortably and safely.

Our doctors use a variety of methods to help with behavioral problems. We employ behavioral training, hormones when appropriate, diet, natural dietary supplements, and special behavioral medications when absolutely necessary. We help cats and dogs with behavior problems ranging from house-training and litter box problems and separation anxiety, storm phobias, to aggression towards people or towards other animals.

If you are having any issues with your pet, be sure and discuss this with your doctor so we can offer behavioral counseling to make your pet’s and your life better.
