RESOLVING BEHAVIOUR PROBLEMS IN PETS
It is not uncommon for the human/animal bond to become a bit frayed due to behaviour challenges in our pets. In fact, behaviour issues are often cited when people give up a pet.
For example, new puppies and kittens are very cute and fun, but they require training so they integrate well with your family and any other pets you may have. The same is true of adopted adult pets, especially if they have ingrained behaviour traits that don’t mesh well with your household.
There are also times where a physical malady can affect behaviour. For example, a pet with cystitis or kidney disease may have issues with inappropriate urination. This is not a behaviour issue, but a sign and symptom of an underlying disease that requires medical treatment from your veterinarian.
