Terms & Information

A behaviour diagnosis and treatment plan will be discussed during the consultation once information has been collected. A detailed report will then be emailed or posted in 1-2 weeks and a copy of the report will be sent to the referring veterinarian and attached to your clinical record. Support will be further provided by email or telephone, or external referral should it be deemed advisory. 

Pet behaviour therapy may produce results quickly, but it is often the case that time, commitment and consistency are required. The amount of progress made over time can vary according to the individual pet and owner compliance. Implementing the treatment plan always remains the caregiver’s responsibility, alongside responsibility for the pet’s welfare and behaviour.

The consultation fee includes, a report detailing the treatment plan, time spent on behalf of the behaviour clinician obtaining history, liaising with a veterinarian over diagnosis and processing the treatment plan and if required referral to external behaviourists. If follow up consultations should be required, an additional charge will be applied. This is because it is otherwise difficult for the clinician to assess the pet’s behaviour in full and because the behaviour diagnosis may have changed in the intervening period or other behaviours may develop in the diagnosis process. The consultation fee is payable at the time of the consultation.
