Behavior Medicine

The Behavior Medicine Clinic at Penn Vet's Ryan Hospital is dedicated to helping pets and their owners live together comfortably and safely.

Our clinical team members are well qualified and experienced in addressing behavior problems with an approach that combines skills from the fields of behavioral medicine and other branches of veterinary medicine. We use a rigorous scientific approach to understand the regulating mechanisms behind animal behavior and its pathologies. This approach allows us to deliver an effective and welfare-friendly behavior treatment.

We see cats and dogs of all ages for behavior problems, ranging from house-training and litter box problems and destructive or self-injurious activity, to aggression towards people or towards other animals.
