Cat Behavioural Services

Behaviour problems in cats can occur for a number of reasons including fear, stress, boredom, or pain. They can also be a manifestation of normal behaviours (like hunting prey) that our indoor cats are unable to carry out. Medical causes for inappropriate behaviours include lower urinary tract disease, constipation, nausea, and joint pain.

What are some behavioural signs?


We can help address many different types of behaviour issues including urinating or defecating outside the litter box, aggression towards other cats or people, destructive habits, and excessive grooming.

What can we do to help?


We may recommend interventions such as environmental modification or enrichment, supplements, diet change, or medication.

What are the steps taken?


We will follow up by phone after your appointment and a recheck visit may be recommended depending on the issue.
