Our Support & Guidance for Pet Obedience Training Can Modify Problem Behaviors

Pets that misbehave, resist housebreaking, or become aggressive can certainly frustrate their owners. The team of Crescenta Valley Veterinary Hospital never wants you to become so frustrated that your pet ends up in a shelter. We offer behavioral counseling with simple techniques for basic training. These techniques can help pet owners as well as enhance the relationship between pets and their owners.

Behavioral Medication & Obedience Training

At every wellness exam, we discuss your pet’s behavior and any behavioral changes since the last visit. This can help determine if there is a physical issue causing problem behaviors such as a urinary tract infection or intestinal parasites, if medications may be useful, or if basic training is advised.

Certainly pain or illness can influence your pet’s behavior, attitude, and overall demeanor. Changes in the makeup of your family or a move to a new home can also cause a behavioral change in a pet. We work with you to find the cause of troubling behaviors, offering solutions and resources to help create a more positive relationship with your animal companion.

Consult our veterinarians for information, advice, and resources that will assist you in working with your pet.
