Kathy is a qualified veterinary behaviourist with over 20 years experience. She is available for consultation regarding behavioural issues in any species but works primarily with dogs and cats. Common problems include anxiety, aggression and house soiling. Home visit consultations are strongly preferred in all cases. Behaviour issues are complicated and many people are reluctant to seek assistance because they feel that it is all their fault. That is rarely the case. The best chance of success is when assistance is sought early. Most commonly, rather than getting better with time things get worse unless appropriate, qualified advice is obtained. Successful treatment involves understanding why the behaviour is occurring and developing strategies to make positive changes. This may include medications, lifestyle adjustments and referral to appropriate therapeutic trainers and a variety of other strategies and will vary from case to case. Each treatment plan is highly individualised working together with the animal and their family. Dr Cornack is able to provide certificates to councils regarding dangerous or menacing dogs, following appropriate assessment.
