Do You Need Help With Your Crazy Cat?
At The Pet Behaviour Clinic we work with cats with all sorts of problems. Below is a list of the most common types of problems we see. If you are dealing with any problem on the list, or one that isn't, please get in contact to arrange a behaviour consultation.
Common behaviour problems:
- House soiling
- Attention seeking
- Urine spraying or marking
- Fabric chewing
- Repetitive obsessive behaviour e.g. over-grooming
What is a Behaviour Consultation?
A behaviour consultation takes place in your own home and can lasts about 2 hours. During the consultation a detailed history of your cat will be taken and the problem behaviour will be assessed.
Here at The Pet Behaviour Clinic we use a technique of assessing problem behaviour called EMRA. The EMRA technique focuses on the emotional state of your pet, the motivation behind the behaviour and what is reinforcing it. By using this technique we can treat the cause of the problem and not just the problem itself.
Once the assessment has been completed you will be advised of a treatment plan. This will be thoroughly explained and demonstrated so you are entirely comfortable with all aspects. A written report will be sent after the visit. This will include a brief history, a summary of the problem behaviour and a list of instructions. On-going support will be available via phone calls and email. Occassionally severe behaviour problems, such as aggression, may require a follow up visit.
