Today, behaviour problems kill more pets than any infectious disease process. Every year millions of pets are abandoned, relinquished, abused and neglected. Many of them end up in shelters, in the street or killed. An important number of these individuals could be saved if owners were better informed about their pet's behavioural needs through competent sources.
Pets are an integral part of family life and their unwanted behaviour cause their human family distress, which in turn may lead to relinquishment and euthanasia.
Veterinarians play a vital role in guiding pet owners in the right direction. Behaviour problems can involve complex conditions that require behaviour counselling, home visits and regular follow up by a certified professional. This is where a qualified animal behaviour consultant can help.
