At Home Pet Behaviour Assessment and Modification- Home Vet Adelaide

Is your beloved furry friend causing some challenges at home? Are you dealing with common behavior issues in your dog or cat?

Both cats and dogs can exhibit a range of behavior issues, and while each individual pet is unique, there are some common behavior problems that you may encounter.

“I have three pets and don’t drive so having someone come out to the house was so great. Two of our dogs are anxious so vet visits are stressful enough without the car ride. Dr Mac is was really lovely and really spent his time with each pet to make them comfortable and to get to know their history. Would definitely recommend using Dr. Mac if you need a mobile vet.”

Comprehensive Assessment

During the visit, Dr. Mac will evaluate your pet's behavior issues and discuss your concerns.

Identifying Common Behavior Issues in Dogs

  1. Aggression: This can manifest as aggression towards other dogs, people, or even specific situations. It may be rooted in fear, territoriality, or resource guarding.
  2. Separation Anxiety: Dogs may become anxious or distressed when left alone, leading to destructive behavior, excessive barking, or house soiling.
  3. Excessive Barking: Some dogs bark excessively, whether it's due to boredom, fear, anxiety, or territorial instincts.
  4. Leash Reactivity: Dogs may display aggressive or overly excited behavior when on a leash, often directed at other dogs or people.
  5. Chewing and Destructive Behavior: Destructive chewing might result from boredom, anxiety, or teething in puppies.
  6. Toilet Training Issues: Some dogs may struggle with housebreaking, leading to accidents inside the home.
  7. Jumping on People: Overenthusiastic greetings can result in dogs jumping on people, which may be unwanted behavior.
  8. Cognitive dysfunction: More commonly age-related behavioural changes

Identifying Common Behavior Issues in Cats

  1. Scratching Furniture: Cats have a natural instinct to scratch, and if not provided with appropriate outlets like scratching posts, they may damage furniture.
  2. Inappropriate Elimination: Cats may urinate or defecate outside the litter box due to medical issues, stress, or dislike of the litter box.
  3. Aggression: Cats can display aggression towards other cats, animals, or even people, especially if they feel threatened.
  4. Excessive Vocalization: Some cats meow excessively, which can be due to attention-seeking behavior, illness, or anxiety.
  5. Spraying or Marking: Cats may spray urine to mark their territory, especially if they feel threatened or stressed.
  6. Hiding or Fearfulness: Timid or fearful behavior can be an issue, especially in cats with a history of trauma or limited socialization.
  7. Pica: Cats may eat non-food items like plastic, paper, or wool, which can be a health hazard.
  8. Cognitive dysfunction: More commonly age-related behavioural changes.
