Pet Behavior Consultations: Finding Solutions to Troubling Pet Behavior

West Hills Animal Hospital celebrates the human-animal bond, and we want to help foster the relationship between you and your pet. We appreciate how disruptive unresolved behavior problems can be on your family, and behavioral problems are the main reason pets are rehomed or surrendered to shelters.

Pet Behavioral Consultation

We enjoy sharing our knowledge of pet behavior with our clients. Your pet’s preventive visit provides the opportunity to discuss any pet behavioral issues you are experiencing. Together, we can develop a plan to address your pet’s unwanted behavior.

A few unwanted-behavior examples include:

  • Separation anxiety
  • Phobias
  • Urine marking behavior

Pet Selection Consultation

We understand the joys of pet ownership, and proper pet selection is important step. Together we can help you choose a pet that best fits your home and lifestyle. We have experience with all types of pets including exotics, and it would be our pleasure to discuss all of your options with you, so you can make the best decision for your family.

Fear-Free Animal Hospital

We have created longstanding partnerships with veterinary behaviorists, licensed trainers, and other leaders in pet behavior to understand and incorporate the needs of your pets into our practice. We strive to provide a safe and comforting atmosphere to make a trip to the veterinarian a pleasant experience for both you and your pet. Our unique approach is ideal for pets who have demonstrated fear, anxiety, or aggressive behavior problems associated with veterinary care in the past.

Our environment is designed to minimize stress and includes:

  • An open floor plan
  • Solid doors to minimize sound transfer
  • Individualized ventilation systems to minimize scent transfer
  • Positive pheromone therapy
  • A loving veterinary team, with a pocket full of treats

The Art of Progressive Veterinary Care
The Heart of Compassion


We have been with West Hills Animal Hospital for over 30 years. We appreciate the great care and compassion they have given our dogs. We appreciate their informative explanation and choice of treatments. They have a wonderful staff!

Once again, excellent service and genuine care for our 13 year old lab. We know we are in great hands at West Hills! Thank you!

I took 10-year-old Dusty in for his semi-annual exam. He is always thrilled when he sees we're at West Hills, as he associates them with love and cookies. Dr. Remcho and the rest of the team showed their usual warmth, competence, and care for Dusty throughout the process. I will admit that I sometimes cringe when I see the bills, but I never doubt that Dusty is getting the best possible care.

The veterinarians were so kind and they were wonderful with my animals. The clinic kept in contact with me through out the procedure and recovery. They even called me the next day to make sure everything was going well. Thank you so much to West hills for the amazing service!
