Behavioral Management

Dealing with a misbehaved cat or dog who simply won't seem to listen can be a tough task as a pet owner. At Hollywood Cat and Dog Hospital in West Hollywood, our behavioral management services can help you improve your pet's behavior.

.

Understanding Pet Behavior

The first step to changing the way your pet behaves is understanding why they behave badly in the first place. There's usually a good reason for your pet's poor behavior, whether you're not paying enough attention to them or they're in a space that's too small. You need to try to understand why your pet is behaving the way they are so you can take steps to change that behavior, and Hollywood Cat and Dog Hospital can help. When a veterinarian walks you through your dog or cat's behavior, it's easier to understand why they're acting the way they are and what you can do to prevent that. This is an essential part of behavioral management for pets.

Improving Pet Behavior

While understanding why your pet is behaving badly is important, that's only part of the battle. You also need to figure out how to correct those behaviors, which is something the experts at Hollywood Cat and Dog Hospital do a great job of. Through gentle guidance and positive reinforcement, we can help encourage good behavior in your pets.

Aside from improving your pet's behavior, we can also teach you techniques for being a good pet owner and keeping them in line. Simply paying attention to the energy you're putting off around your pets can be a huge step forward when it comes to making them behave better.

A Little Help

Improving pet behavior is difficult enough without considering how frustrating it can be. Still, there's nothing that isn't worth it for your furry friend, which is why Hollywood Cat and Dog Hospital is happy to help with animal behavior. If your pets are making a mess of the house, barking all the time or being too aggressive, we can help discourage those behaviors. Best of all, Hollywood Cat and Dog Hospital uses humane behavioral management methods, so your dog or cat gets the behavioral help they need without any of the negatives that can come with pet training.

Call Us Today

Making sure your pet is well-behaved is important, but that doesn't mean it's easy. As a matter of fact, pet owners everywhere struggle with keeping dogs quiet, keeping cats from ruining couches and more. If you need a little behavioral management help from a veterinarian, call Hollywood Cat and Dog Hospital to schedule an appointment with our animal clinic today.

Thanks to Dr. Anderson, he evaluated Fabio and his current diet to make some recommendations and now Fabio has gone from barely eating to finishing his meals and he looks healthier than ever. You clearly are an expert in your field...thanks so much!"
