Behavioral Care

Understanding all of your pet’s behaviors can be confusing. What’s normal behavior and what behaviors might need your attention to curb or eliminate?

At Ohana Pet Hospital, our veterinarians and specialists are available to help explain and guide you through various behaviors, whether trained or unwanted:

  • House training techniques – dogs and cats (litter box encouragement)
  • Pet anxiety – our energy healer may be able to help
  • Environmental enrichment
  • Holistic carethere are supplements that may be able to help
  • And more

With dogs unwanted behavior issues can be worked through with increased social interactions like going to doggie daycare or a dog friendly park. Another way to exert behavioral problems is by giving your dog a “job” such as:

  • Obedience Classes
  • Agility Training
  • Herding
  • Fly Ball
  • And more

Focus on “jobs” that engage your dog’s mind, leverage natural instincts of a breed, and allow excess energy in an acceptable manner.

When behavior problems become increasingly serious, we may recommend a veterinary behaviorist. These specialty veterinarians have additional training and expertise needed to help pets with serious behavioral issues.

Please contact us to schedule an appointment, so that you may discuss any questions you have with one of our veterinarians about your pet’s behavior.
