Welcome to Pet Behavior Problems.com a web site designed by
veterinarians to personally help your dog or cat with behavior
Our staff consists of animal behavior consultants who are veterinarians
or animal psychologists including Dr. Amy Marder and Dr. Leah Nettle. We all work together to design unique behavioral
therapy programs for each animal. Everyone here has advanced degrees
(Ph.D.,.. Masters) and years of experience working with all kinds
of animal behavior problems. Many of our staff members are considered
to be the top veterinary behaviorists in the country. We often teach
at veterinary schools, lecture to veterinarians, and have written
or contributed to several veterinary textbooks. In addition to helping

DID WE WANT TO START THIS WEBSITE?
Animal behavior problems are common and one of the biggest reasons
that people give up their animals or treat them harshly. By treating
behavior problems we can enhance the relationship between a person
and their companion animal and prevent further damage. The web enables
us to help people that do not have access to veterinary behaviorists.

DO WE DO?
We do the same things on the web and by phone for you and your
pet that we do in our offices or your home visit "House Calls". First we get a very thorough behavioral
and medical history. We provide a behavioral history form which
we ask you to carefully complete. If possible, we would like your
pet's medical records either e_mail, faxed or sent to us. After we receive
all of the necessary information, one of our veterinary behaviorists
will provide you with: a diagnosis and explanation of your pet's
behavior problem, a personalized treatment plan, and handouts to
help you implement the program. If drug therapy is recommended we or we
will be contacting your veterinarian to prescribe the specific medication.
If dog training is part of your program, we will work with a trainer
in your area. Photographs or a 10-15 minute videotape of your pet’s
misbehavior in action are helpful (but not required). Follow-ups
are done either by e_mail or by phone.
REMEMBER: Your pet loves you no matter
what you do or who you are.
