As owners, we might think our pet is simply ‘acting out’ or trying to get attention, however, the problem could run much deeper and that’s where behavioural medicine can help.
Separation-related anxiety, compulsive behaviours, noise phobias, aggression and generalised anxiety are all disorders in dogs that can be addressed by veterinary behavioural medicine.
Intercat aggression in multi-cat households or feline spraying are common behavioural signs of stress in cats that can also be improved with this type of treatment.
You can book a veterinary behavioural appointment for your cat or dog with JT at our Bromsgrove or Hagley surgery, or at your home.
So that we can understand what’s happening with your pet, you will need to fill in a behavioural questionnaire and return it to us at least two days before your appointment.
A veterinary behavioural appointment will last around 1 hour. You’ll have plenty of time to understand the underlying reasons for your pet’s behaviour and how you can change it. For some pets, an extra appointment may be required to work through their problems.
Changing behaviours can be a long-term process, needing commitment, encouragement and regular review. You can book follow-up appointments at monthly or 6-month intervals, whatever your pet needs, to check on their progress and iron out any lingering problems.
Behavioural problems are often related to mental disorders and they take time and commitment to change, so be prepared to work! However, helping your pet improve from such a complex problem couldn’t be more satisfying and your bond with them will be forever strengthened.
The importance of animal behaviour and psychological well-being is increasingly recognised in the veterinary profession. Behavioural disorders are very common in our pets, inducing suffering to the animals and damaging the affective bond with their humans. These are actually found to be the main reason for pet relinquishment and euthanasia in shelters.
If you think your pet might have a behavioural disorder, it is important you seek the help of a qualified professional and you really dig deep into their certifications. Behavioural therapy is still a very recent, and therefore highly unregulated, industry and unqualified help could have a long-lasting worsening effect on your pet’s behaviour.
Behavioural changes can be due to an infinite number of reasons, including pain and unrelated diseases. Seeking the help of a veterinarian will allow you to rule out all of these before initiating an individual behavioural modification protocol.
Very professional, caring and considerate staff. Rod was brilliant, spent a lot of time explaining my dog Baxter’s issues and I will recommend this practice to all.Noel Wheatley, Facebook
Very sympathetic and knowledgeable.Satisfied Customer
I’d just like to say a big thank you to Clent Hills on how well they handled the recent euthanasia of my 18 year old Cat and then two months later of my twelve and a half year old Staffie. I was a blubbering wreck on both occasions and from the time I went in to the time I returned to pick up their ashes, everyone was so helpful. It’s not a pleasant thing to have to do but I can honestly say having used Rod and his team now for nearly twenty years, I rate them very highly and thank them for looking after my pets through their full and fun lives.Mark Young, Facebook
Excellent vets. Been going there for years and they always look after my animals brilliantly. Their prices are very fair as well. I recommend them to everyone who will listen!Becky Winmill, Facebook
Such a wonderful vets with caring staff. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.Rachael Tye, Facebook
I’ve owned lots of animals over the years (mostly cats) so finding a vet practice has always been top of my agenda. With a few failed attempts over the years I began to lose faith. Having recently become the owner of a pedigree dog (my first ever dog) It was really paramount that I find the best in my area and I certainly have. My puppy is still young 9 months old (and we’ve had a few problems since owning him) but the service to date has been Impeccable….First class. Would highly recommendAbi, Vet Help DIrect
My sons’ 2 rabbits, Boris and Jack are very well looked after by the team at Clent Hills. Very kind and caring staff. Well done.Melanie H, Best of Bromsgrove
Well where do i start! This time 2 weeks ago we were prepared to say goodnight to our very special Boy Buddy who was extremely poorly but with the love and dedication of Alan Barbara and girls he is almost back to his old self. I can not thank the team enough, it is their compassion that stands out, the girls on reception all make a fuse of him the nurses pop out to see him whilst waiting for Alan or Barbara. They are without a doubt Alan and his Angels 🙂 xxxCarol Wilde, Facebook
