Why Consult with a Veterinary Behaviorist? Pets are part of the family. Pet behavior problems are disruptive, stressful, and threaten the human-animal bond. Aggression problems can be potentially dangerous. Behavior consultation is designed to address a pet’s unique behavior problem with follow-up included to monitor response to treatment. Behavior problems need to be treated by a veterinarian who is capable of assessing undiagnosed medical conditions and prescribing behavior-modifying medicine when necessary.
