Behavior Counseling

Behavior Counseling

Sometimes pets do not act the way that we want them to, despite how much we love them. Certain animals experience anxiety being left alone, being around other animals, during thunderstorms or fireworks displays, or with a change in environment. They can bark tirelessly, cower, shake, hide, mark territory, urinate or defecate in inappropriate places, destroy belongings or even become aggressive towards another pet or person. We understand that this can be extremely upsetting for all parties involved, and we are happy to help work through these issues with behavior modification, positive reinforcement and praise. Referrals to local trainers who share our philosophy, or veterinary behavior specialists are available as well.



COVID-19 Update

Dear Woodley Gardens Veterinary Care Family,

As you are all aware, the spread of COVID-19 is causing massive disruptions locally and across our nation. We want you inform you that we remain OPEN with regular business hours to help provide healthcare to your beloved pets. In order to keep our valued clients and caring team healthy, and do our part in social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have adjusted our protocols for the hospital.

For now, only pets are allowed in to the hospital. Clients will have the opportunity to Zoom video conference into their pet’s exam, or the doctor will call you on the phone after the doctor has completed the examination if you do not want to use Zoom. You may view the complete protocol here.

Since this is an ever changing situation, we will adjust as needed in accordance with the CDC, WHO, state and local guidelines. We will keep you updated with any changes via email and on our Facebook and Instagram accounts.

Please note that there are no current indications that COVID-19 affects pets.

We already have rigorous cleaning protocols in place for the hospital, and we have increased the frequency of these cleanings as well. All team members wash their hands following CDC recommendations with soap and water before and after each exam. Anyone feeling ill for any reason is urged to stay home. The additional measures taken are for the safety of our clientele and our team so that we can continue to serve the needs of our patients and our community that we love. Thank you for your understanding.

Stay safe everyone!

Best,
The Team and Woodley Gardens Veterinary Care
