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. As a Fear Free certified veterinarian, 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.

The staff was very accommodating to fit us in as a semi emergency, same day, new patient. Dr Finns recommended treatment worked beautifully. His demeanor was outstanding, he examined my dog where he was most comfortable ie: in my lap and on the floor. Highly recommend.

Wow, what a great experience! Dr. Finn and his staff were absolutely wonderful. They were super friendly, answered all my questions, had a super clean office, and treated my cat with kindness and respect. I have been to many vets around the DFW area, and this has been the best experience I have had at a vet. Definitely will bring all my pets here for future wellness checks and more. Thank you!

I’m new to McKinney and needed to find a vet. I took my older lab, Buddy, to Pet Method. Everyone was so kind and friendly. I was getting around with a broken foot and they went above and out of their way to help me with Buddy while we were there. I loved how they got on the floor with Buddy, at his level and not putting him on an exam table. It made a world of difference. I will definitely take Buddy back from now on!

Everyone here is so kind & patient. My mom is 75 and we had to take her toy poodle here for an injury he had with his nail. They were all so good with him and very detailed about everything going on. Prices were affordable and service was great! Thank you for taking care of Wheatley!
