Being able to control your pet’s behaviour is a crucial part of responsible pet ownership and makes life both happier and safer for you and your animal.

Vets in Cranbourne have years of experience helping pet owners find solutions to a wide range of behavioural problems in pets of all shapes, sizes and ages. Whether you have a kitten clawing the furniture, an escape artist terrier, or an older pet who has forgotten their toilet training, the team at Vets in Cranbourne can help.

Determining the right solution for a behavioural problem depends very much on the individual animal, it’s lifestyle and routines. In some cases, all that may be needed is a small adjustment in routine, but if the problem persists, dog training or sessions with a veterinary behaviourist may be necessary. Behavioural issues can also sometimes be an indication of an underlying health problem which your veterinarian will be able to help you manage through medication or treatment.

If you’re the proud owner of a new puppy and want to set your pet on the path to becoming a socialised and well behaved dog, consider enrolling them in our Puppy Pre-School.
