Behavioral Consultation

Addressing Problem Behaviors Quickly Can Help Prevent Relinquishment


Your pet's behavior is influenced by many things including their age, experiences, breed, and environment. Although genetics have a significant influence on behavior, each individual is a product of both their genetic predispositions and their life experiences. Unfortunately, behavior problems continue to be a significant cause of relinquishment to shelters and euthanasia.


At Lake Ontario Veterinary Clinic, we want to help you and your pet resolve any concerning behaviors promptly so that they do not grow into significant behavioral problems. Undoing a learned negative behavior is much more challenging than preventing negative behaviors from forming and unfortunately, it is not always possible to undo every learned behavior.
