Each year more pets are relinquished or euthanized for behavior related problems than for all medical causes combined. Behavior problems are extremely frustrating for owners and cause the bond between owners and pets to quickly deteriorate. Many owners do not know where to turn for help and receive multiple conflicting ideas about how to best solve the problem. The area of animal behavior counseling has recently evolved to give these pet owners somewhere to turn. There is hope for these pets, but we need to accurately identify the cause of their behavior and then examine how it affects them and their family. A logical plan can then be developed to modify the behavior based on how animals learn.

At Animal Hospital of South Gorham our goal is to keep pets a valuable member of their family by providing professional services and educating owners about animal behavior. Once an owner understands why their pet exhibits a certain behavior, the treatment plan begins to make sense and the bond between pet and owner can be restored.

Some example of behavior issues we address are:

Dogs: Jumping, Lack of training, Aggression, Separation anxiety, Fear, nervousness, Excessive barking, Excitability, House soiling, marking, Acral lick dermatitis, Spinning/tail chasing, Fear of thunder.

Cats: Fear, Repetitive behavior, Aggression, Spraying/elimination problems.

Birds: Screaming, Aggression, Feather plucking, Self-mutilation, Stereotypic behaviors.
