Purdue Animal Behavior Clinic

Nowadays, companion animals live with us as close family members and are impacted by our lifestyle, daily schedule, and living environment as well as our interaction with them. The relationship we have with our pets can be enjoyable or stressful depending on their behavior.

Aggression, destruction of furniture, barking, or house soiling are common problems that contribute to the breakdown of our human animal bond. Some behaviors can be very difficult to manage and even dangerous or stressful to live with. Your pet may also suffer from behavior disorders (such as anxiety disorders or phobia, etc.) that is manifested in his/her current problematic behaviors.

What do you do when your pet has behavior problems that seem to have no solution?

If you feel that you do not understand your pet’s behavior and need help, we are here to assist you. Through a behavior consultation at the Purdue Animal Behavior Clinic, we will gather information regarding possible causes and contributing factors of the problematic behavior to make a diagnosis and intervention. Since each animal and family is different, we determine the most feasible and suitable treatment plans to fit your individual situation.

To make an appointment with the Purdue Animal Behavior Clinic, call 765-494-1107 to speak with a receptionist. You will also need to complete the applicable behavior history form prior to your appointment time. If you bring more than two animals as patients, please fill out one form for each pet.

Forms must be returned by the Friday before the week of your appointment.

Before your appointment, the clinician will review the behavior history form for your pet. It is very important for our team to receive the history form prior to your appointment to ensure the appropriate preparations can be made to make the consultation time as efficient as possible.
