Do you have a cat that urinates in inappropriate places or a dog that is destructive when left alone? Or perhaps you are afraid to have people come to your home because your dog barks excessively and frightens your guests. Sometimes animal behavioral problems are just small nuisances, but other times they can be seriously disruptive. Often owners do not know how to modify the behavior or that there is help available. Unfortunately, more animals die each year in the United States because of behavioral problems than from infectious diseases. Of the millions of animals that are euthanized in animal shelters each year, 50% - 70% are brought to the shelter because of their behavior.
Here at Old Dominion we are well positioned to help with these problems. We have veterinarians trained to take a holistic approach in identifying and treating medical and behavioral problems, and identifying how and when they interrelate. A program is then designed specifically for your pet and your household.
