Behavior and Training Solutions

catWhether you are seeking advice on training a kitten, puppy, newly adopted adult or seeking advice on training a pet that is exhibiting problem behaviors, Lawrence Veterinary Hospital is here to help.

The best first step to a successful outcome is to schedule a behavior consultation with one of our Doctors. They will review the extent of your concerns with you and develop a treatment plan.

We can assist with:

  • Introducing pets
  • Preparing for a new baby in the home
  • Separation anxiety
  • Inter-pet aggression in the home
  • Leash reactivity
  • Stress
  • Travel troubles
  • Inappropriate urination/defecation
  • Inappropriate vocalization
  • And more

A Successful Outcome

We have products, supplements, and medications that can assist in your pet’s training and behavior modification plan.

There are some over the counter solutions that make sense in many homes for many pets. These are proven to work, and we are confident recommending them. If you have questions about these products or want to explore using any for your pet, contact us! We can help your pet.

Stress-Free Walking

Products to help leash-train dogs include the Gentle Leader and the Easy Walk Harness. These products offer a safe, fear-free, positive method of training. And they are perfect for training any dog to successfully walk on a leash right beside you. Regular walks are important for a dog’s mental health, as well as their physical health.

Stress-Free Living

Products to help calm stressed pets include a pheromone option as well as a clothing item. The pheromones are naturally occurring and can help calm stressed dogs and cats. The Thundershirt applies a gentle and constant pressure – similar to swaddling a baby. These products are absolutely safe, and have helped many pets overcome their stress.

  • The dog pheromone product is called Adaptil
  • The cat pheromone product is called Feliway
  • The Thundershirt product works for both dogs and cats

Prescriptions for Behavior Modification

The Doctor can discuss options of prescription products and supplements that can help your pet’s behavior during a behavior consultation or regular exam.
