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.
The wonderful people here really helped me out when i was in a tricky position and they didn’t have to, they really do care about you and your pets and i along with many other reviewers here can vouch for that! Best in the area. 🙂Oliver Leo Porter, Facebook
Everyone here is absolutely lovely, vets, assistants and receptionists, all of them so so lovely, compassionate, caring, helpful and thoughtful. Have been using them for about ten years, they know us and our furkids (old and young) so well, wouldn’t go anywhere else with my fur babies.
First class care, for you. . . And your fur baby. <3Heather Bailey, Facebook

Thank you to all of the staff at Hagley for their compassion, care and professionalism. Podge has been given the best chance of living longer due to the treatment he has received. We cannot thank you enough for helping us have our furry boy with us still. A special mention to Rod who is amazing. I would recommend this practice to anyone who wants the best for their pet.

Rod, Barbara and your amazing team!
There are not enough words to express our eternal gratitude to you all for saving Bella’s life.
It is not just your profession, you all care and show true love to the animals within your care.
You’ve never got exasperated with our questions or worries and been behind us every step of Bella’s journey. To say she has made a miraculous recovery is an understatement and that’s something I never thought we would be able to say.
Thankyou you all so very much, lots of love to you all xxxxxLiz Curran, Facebook
From day one Clent Vets has been truly amazing. Highly recommend. They just can’t do enough for you. Amazing service, small touches that really make the difference.Vicki Styles, Facebook
Thankyou so much for looking after my springer spaniel Jess after she had some teeth removed. Staff are lovely and I was really impressed that we had a phone call to check that she was OK. Thankyou.Jayne Woodfield, Facebook
I would definitely recommend you without a doubt, the care we receive is excellent. I’m able to just drop in and get over-the- counter general advice when I need it, and nothing seems too much trouble here. Plus, my dogs have always loved coming to this Vets!Beverley Stanton, Blog
