Nutritional & Behavioral Counseling

Diet and nutrition are important to maintaining your pet’s health. We can help you with your pet’s nutritional needs for each life stage, including dietary requirements for growth, weight loss and maintenance and performance. Please consult our veterinarians to help you find the right food to fit with your pet’s lifestyle, body condition and health needs.

Behavior problems are something most pet owners face at one time or another. It’s important to rule out a medical or physical cause for the behavior, especially if it is a sudden change. Pets can’t tell you when something is wrong, so the behavior could be the symptom of a serious health problem.

Some typical behavior concerns that we can help you with include:

  • Separation anxiety
  • Noise aversion
  • Inappropriate elimination/litterbox issues
  • Excessive barking
  • Obsessive licking/lick granulomas
  • Chewing
  • Pica/coprophagia
  • Aggression/irritability

If you notice your pet acting abnormally, please schedule an appointment with us as soon as possible. Our veterinarians and technicians have the training and experience to assess and assist with most behavior issues. Call us at (703) 327-0909 to make an appointment or schedule one online!
