Concerned about a behavior you're seeing in your cat?
Wondering how and where to get started? Look no further you’ve come to the right place.
Here are some of the unwanted behaviors we can tackle together...
Inappropriate elimination (#1 reason a cat is relinquished to a shelter)
Aggression toward people
Aggression toward other cats
Destructive scratching behaviors
Fear related behaviors
Using applied behavior analysis we take a look at the environment, the animal, and what consequences are maintaining the behavior of concern. From there we come up with a personalized plan to create behavior change that improves the lives of you and your pet. Many behaviors that our animals display are natural but may have become maladaptive to their current situation because of learning and repeated exposure to a certain stimulus or situation. By looking at all these aspects together we can create change through the use of scientifically proven methods.
Only scientifically sound and current behavior modification methods will be used so you can be rest assured your cat is getting the best care possible.
Collaboration is at the heart of high quality care. I strive to work hand in hand with your veterinarian, your pet sitters, and everyone in the family to assure your cat’s needs and are well met and everyone is on the same page working in tandem.
With a fresh look at your cat's environment and a thorough history many of these problems can be managed and resolved.
