Behavior problems in pets are very common and can lead to frustration, a weakening of the human-animal bond, and even a loss in quality of life for both you and your pet. Studies have shown that behavior problems represent the most common cause for the relinquishment of pets to animal shelters. The Monument East Veterinary Hospital is committed to helping keep pets in their homes, strengthening the bond you have with your pet, and maximizing your pet's quality of life.
Some of the most common behavioral problems that we treat through the Monument East Behavior Service include:
Fears and phobias
Aggression (towards humans or other animals)
Housesoiling and urine marking
Unruly and destructive behaviors
"Compulsive" and repetitive behaviors
Age-related cognitive dysfunction
