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.
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

We are new to the area and when I called Clent Hills Vets to discuss the care of my pets, well I can’t speak highly enough – very helpful Thank you!!!Janet H, Best of Bromsgrove
I first took my puppy storm here 8 years ago, the staff and vets make you feel individual and that your pet and you are special, their expertise is second to none, Rod the head vet is amazing, unfortunately around the age of five he diagnosed my German Shepherd as having pannus an immune system disease, that affects her eyes. I was mortified, the sole care and attention he has given her is exemplary. Clent Hills Vets ticks all the boxes, No.1 all the way, I highly recommend Clent hills vets, Hagley, to anyone who loves their pets the way we love ours, more than just a vets, that’s Clent hills all the way.Vivian Childe, Facebook
We’d just like to say a very big ‘THANK YOU’ to all the staff at Clent Hills Bromsgrove and Hagley. You have brought Bob safely through 2 major operations in the last 3 years and have always been supportive to us humans in working through the decisions to be made, and offering the highest level of care and concern to Bob during his ops and his recovery period. Thank you everyone! We know that things remain uncertain for his longer-term, but he is now pain free and able to still enjoy everything that he has always enjoyed.
Our other 2 dogs have only visited for routine health checks/ Vaccinations etc., thankfully, but they always receive a warm welcome and are both graduates of the wonderful Puppy Parties 🙂.
Thank you from the whole family <3Jayne De Rooy, Facebook
Thank you once again for the excellent care you have given to Willow during and after her TPLO surgery, as always from reception staff, nurses and vets you all show such a genuine care for the animals that are with you and patience with me and my phone calls and questions. Can’t thank you enough 🙂Sharon Edwards, Facebook
