Welcome to Our Practice!
We are a behavior specialty practice located in Virginia. Similar to psychiatry and behavioral
therapy in humans, our practice focuses on the
mental and emotional well-being of our patients.
Animal Behavior Wellness Center's purpose is to screen companion animals for behavioral disorders, diagnose them, and develop treatment plans to assist in their rehabilitation.
As a team of veterinary behavior professionals, we take a truly holistic approach to wellness. First, we determine if your pet is physically healthy. Then, we gather information about your pet's background, environment, relationships, and responsiveness to intervention. Only then can we determine if there is an underlying behavioral disorder.
We Provide Treatment for :
Mouthing and nipping
High energy/difficulty relaxing
Distress during veterinary procedures
Inappropriate urination and defecation
Obsessive behaviors like chasing lights
Fearfulness, hiding, and anti-social behavior
Our Commitment to Purely Positive Intervention
Animal Behavior Wellness Center relies entirely on positive reinforcement tools and techniques proven to improve communication, while maintaining and strengthening the human/animal bond.
We encourage you to learn more about the science behind our mission from the experts at the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior (AVSAB).
Animal Behavior Wellness Center is dedicated to the wellness of your entire family. We provide treatment roadmaps to behavioral wellness customized to address your unique concerns, and designed to improve the quality of your lives.
