Did you know some of your pet’s behaviors may be related to a hidden
illness…and you may not even realize it?
Schedule your pet’s yearly exam today to discuss your pet’s behavior. Let’s
check to make sure your pet is healthy!
Nipping. Scratching. Litter box issues. Leash pulling. Meowing at night. Urinating on
the floor. Chewing shoes.
Are these behaviors just part of being a “normal” dog or cat, or not?
Actually, some common behavior issues are due to underlying medical problems. And
these illnesses are tough to recognize even for the most observant owners.
For example, your dog may urinate on your floor. It may be from excitement, but it also
can be from a urinary tract infection. Your cat may stop jumping on your lap. Not
because she’s being unfriendly, but because she has arthritis and jumping is too painful
to her joints.
If these behaviors are left unchecked, it’s a triple issue. The behavior may worsen, the
underlying illness may progress (which puts your pet’s health at risk), and most
importantly, your pet’s quality of life as part of your family is compromised.
Here’s where we can help. We have the expertise when it comes to analyzing,
identifying and resolving behavior issues with your pet. At your pet’s yearly checkup:
• If your dog is petrified of fireworks, we can discuss desensitization techniques to
give him relief.
• If your older cat is suddenly drinking a lot more water, our physical exam may
reveal that your cat has an illness. We’ll run the right tests and prescribe
medications if needed.
• We can talk about your pet’s behavior. Some behavior issues are related to medical
problems, but many just require new training strategies. Either way, we can help
fix those behaviors and give your pet a new leash on life!
Make an appointment for your pet’s annual exam today. We’ll check to make sure all of
your pet’s behaviors are appropriate and signs of good health. We are committed to
your pet’s well-being… all the way! Call us today!
