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 significant 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

After Care & Follow Up for Returning Patients
In order to be successful, Follow Up is needed. In most cases, we meet with you every 4 to 6 weeks for the first 6 months after beginning treatment. After each appointment, you will receive a written report containing a discussion summary, an outline of next steps, homework, and access to case-specific educational materials and other resources. For your convenience, Follow Up can be completed in person, via video conferencing, or over the phone.
