San Francisco Pet Behavior

A Veterinary Consulting Service

The deep bond we develop with our pets is truly wonderful. I have always been fascinated by the complex repertoire of behavior that animals exhibit for we share an evolutionary history and we can gain insight into our own behaviors through understanding other species. I am particularly interested in inter-species relationships. We relate to other animals much like we do to people, with a mixture of love and affection and occasional frustration. Having dedicated my life to the professional care of animals as a veterinarian, I have witnessed a wide spectrum of behavior problems and a multitude of possible solutions. My goal is to understand why these behaviors are expressed and offer compassionate strategies for improvement. I will teach you how to relate to your pet in a way which enhances quality of life so that you can live a harmonious life together.
