Behavior Medicine Services

The Animal Behavior Clinic is associated with the Center for the Human-Animal Bond. At the Animal Behavior Clinic, we use methods based on scientific principles to efficiently change troublesome animal behaviors. We want to work with you and your pet because changing behaviors saves pets’ lives and enhances the human-animal relationships.

Purdue's Animal Behavior Clinic operates on a referral basis. To schedule an appointment for your animal, call the large animal reception desk at (765) 494-8548 for scheduling and general appointment information. When making an appointment, please keep in mind that we encourage as many family members as possible attend the consultation appointment.
