Learn the Reasons Behind Your Pet’s Behavioral Issues

Bringing a new pet into your home can be a fun and exciting time for you family. If you have kids, they’re probably eager to play with and take care of the new puppy or kitten, and you’ll be able to teach them about the responsibility of owning a pet. If, as your pet grows, you begin to notice behavioral problems, such as favoring one child over another, or that they’re more aggressive towards one person than another, there could be an underlying medical problem that needs to be addressed. At your Markham animal hospital, we can help discover the reason for the behavioral issue and treat whatever is causing the problem.

With a thorough examination, as well as blood work and urinalysis, we can determine if a medical issue is causing the aggression, excessive urination, or depression in your pet. If your pet is experiencing internal pain, there’s obviously no way they can tell you about it, other than lashing out towards or withdrawing from their owners. We know how frustrating and upsetting a situation such as this can be, and that’s why we’re here to provide professional and compassionate care for both you and your pet.

Often, by correcting a medical issue, the behavioral problems will be corrected as well. By working with our behavioral training and remedying any medical problem, your pet can enjoy a long and healthy life from the very start. When you bring your pet to your Markham animal hospital, you can rest assured that we will do everything we can for your pet.
