Main Street Pet Care- Inappropriate Marking Behavior Pt. 1- February 25, 2014

Dr. Ben Leavens talks about animals that are responsible for unwanted marking and ruling out medical problems.
Inappropriate Elimination/Marking is number one cause of give-ups in small dogs
and cats.  Most serious health problem we see in small dogs for this reason (ie:
if it can't be solved, the pet is often given up/euthanized).  Remember that
neutering your pet before six months of age is the most effective way to solve
this problem.
