Behavioural issues are the number one reason young pets are given up to shelters or euthanized.  Fortunately, many of these issues can be significantly improved with the help of a veterinarian.  At the Mississippi Miils Animal Hospital our veterinarians can help you and your pet work through many behavioural issues including house soiling, anxiety, aggression issues and compulsive disorders such as tail chasing and flank sucking.  For more severe cases we can refer you to a veterinarian with advanced training in animal behaviour. 

Remember, socialization of puppies and kittens is essential to teach your little one how to behave in certain circumstances.  The following socialization handouts have some great information:
