Dog Behavioural Counseling

Behavioural issues can often be one of the most frustrating aspects of owning a dog. With so much information available to dog owners, it can be confusing as to who to listen to and where to seek advice. The team at Lomsnes Veterinary Hospital is here to help. If you have any questions regarding your dog’s behaviour problems, we will do our absolute best to help you determine the best method of training.

How can my veterinarian help with my dog’s behaviour?

Our veterinarians can help with your dog’s behaviour problems by ruling out any underlying medical problems. Pain, illness or discomfort may cause your dog to act inappropriately. Once medical problems and pain are ruled out the Lomsnes Veterinary Hospital staff can give you tips on useful training methods.

What happens at a consultation?

Often undesirable behaviour in the household can be a result of an underlying medical condition. One of our veterinarians will obtain a thorough medical history, perform a wellness exam from nose to tail, and if necessary, conduct diagnostic testing. From there, our veterinarian will work with you to develop an action plan for you and your dog to address their behavioural problems.

Will my pet insurance policy cover the cost of a consultation?

Pet insurance policies vary, which is why it is best to contact your pet insurance company about your policy and what is and isn’t covered regarding medical and behavioural wellness exams performed by one of our veterinarians.

What to expect after the consultation?

After your dog’s medical examination and behavioural consultation, our veterinarians will follow-up with a phone call to see how you and your dog are doing with the information that you were given during your visit. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Lomsnes Veterinary Hospital and we will answer any more questions you may have.
