At Brisbane Behaviour Vet (BBV), we use evidence-based techniques to diagnose the underlying cause of behavioural issues in dogs and cats. Through tailored behaviour modification training, reviewing environmental factors, and prescribing appropriate medication where needed, we help you enhance the life of your pet (and the bond they have with you).
We offer dog and cat consults and treat a range of behavioural problems, including separation anxiety, fear, aggression, obsessive-compulsive disorders, cognitive dysfunction with aging, and more.LEARN MORE
We’ll monitor your pet’s progress and adapt our recommendation accordingly. From behavioural modification, environmental management, and medication (where needed), we create the right treatment plan for you and your pet.LEARN MORE
A behaviour vet is a registered veterinarian with further training and qualification in behavioural medicine. We are professionally trained and qualified to correctly diagnose an underlying cause of your pet’s behavioural issue and prescribe appropriate treatment, which may include a behavioural modification program, environmental management, and medication. We look after your pet’s mental health and behavioural problems while taking their overall physical health into consideration.
Currently, we work with both cats and dogs (and their owners!).
Training is in no doubt essential in teaching our furry companions life skills. However, many behavioural issues are not obedience-related problems. Training alone will not resolve the underlying cause, such as anxiety and fear, affecting your pet’s ability to learn. The most obedient dog will still escape the yard when they panic in a storm!
Behaviour problems may be contributed by other underlying or concurrent medical conditions. Therefore, assessment by a veterinarian is very important, rather than relying on training to help resolve the issue.
