The Behavioral Medicine Service is part of the North Carolina State University Veterinary Health and Wellness Center. We specialize in the treatment of behavior disorders in companion animals. These include anxiety disorders, elimination problems, compulsive behaviors, and numerous other problems in dogs and cats.
When seen at the Behavioral Medicine Service, patients are evaluated with their owners and a management program is developed. This generally consists of specific instructions regarding environmental management and behavior modification techniques. After a medical evaluation, behavioral medication may also be recommended. Telephone or internet consultation services are not available through the Behavioral Medicine Service until after a patient has been seen in our clinic.
