What Is Behavioral Evaluation?

From tail-wagging to aggression, your pet's behavior says a lot about what they're feeling. An animal's environment, instincts, and history all affect current behavior. Sometimes, animals act out or engage in destructive behavior as a result of being stressed, anxious, fearful, or simply inactive. At Pet Method, we provide behavioral evaluations to pinpoint temperament issues and offer effective solutions to correct the problem. Dr. Hunter Finn is an expert in identifying what's driving a particular behavior, as well as educating pet owners in techniques to alleviate any issues. If you're interested in learning more about behavioral evaluation, please contact our office in McKinney, TX.

How Does A Behavioral Assessment Work?

After we find out some basic information about your pet and identify any triggers, we will assess and observe your pet's behavior based on several factors, such as:

  • Excitability
  • Aggression
  • Training and obedience
  • Attachment
  • Separation anxiety

Improving a pet's behavior requires teamwork between the veterinarian and the pet owner. Based on the results of the behavioral assessment, Dr. Finn will work with you to implement a behavior modification strategy, which may involve several steps. The goal is to eliminate fear, stress, and anxiety in your pet. Through consistency and positive reinforcement, you should start to see positive changes over time.

Dr. Finn and his team are the best! I had taken my dog to four other vets before all of which prescribed pain medication and said it wasn’t emergent when she was having trouble walking and unable to eat. I took my dog to Pet Method where Dr. Finn did blood work, X-rays and an ultrasound she was found to be in CKD and needed to be emergently admitted for aggressive treatment. My baby would have died if it wasn’t for him & his team

My dogs absolutely love Pet Method. We used to take them to another pet hospital and they would always end up being terrified after the exam. For example, our older dog, Henry, would cower under the chairs after getting his shot or his nails clipped. At Pet Method, they took their time to make sure he was comfy and gave him lots of treats while also clipping his nails in a quick and neat manner. He ended up snoring afterwards in his exam room! We live in Garland and are gladly driving up to this place because we know that our pets would get the best treatment from Dr. Finn and his staffs. 10/10 would definitely recommend them to anyone who's looking for a vet who truly cares about their pets!
