Pet behaviour problems can be due to behavioural causes or medical causes. At Rose Avenue Veterinary Hospital in Coffs Harbour and Toormina Road Veterinary Clinic, our veterinarians will thoroughly investigate pet behaviour problems. We do this by obtaining a complete history and conducting a comprehensive examination. Our investigation may include blood or urine tests to rule out underlying medical conditions and accurately diagnose a problem.
Ultimately, Pet behavioural problems result from the combined effect of many factors, including your pet’s environment, what they have learned, their genetics and any medical conditions.
Like many conditions, professional advice must be obtained as soon as the problem appears to maximise any treatment program’s effectiveness. Diagnosis takes place at our first-class vet hospital in Coffs Harbour. It has been custom-designed and equipped to investigate and treat the majority of illnesses and pet behaviour problems our patients may have.
Furthermore, our on-site laboratory allows us to offer immediate results in some cases, including serum biochemistry and PCV/TPP. In-house blood testing is mainly utilised for pre-anaesthetic blood screening tests but is also indispensable for emergency cases. For complete blood work or histopathology, we send our samples to a larger laboratory that offers immediate pick up of samples and fast turnaround on results, with interpretation provided by a veterinary pathology specialist.
