Veterinary behaviour consults with our veterinary behaviourist Dr Katie Friel-Russell BVSc APDT PGDip MRCVS are available for both dogs and cats.
These are to diagnose and begin the treatment plan for emotionally driven behaviours, this is more in depth than just a simple training problem. As with all our training all work is science based and force-free.
All behaviour consults must have a veterinary referral.
Behaviour consults can be claimed for on pet insurance if you have it.

Ideally all adults in the household would be present, it means everyone is working from the same page.
The consults are often boring for children so if they would prefer to not be present that is absolutely fine.
If work patterns make it difficult for all to be present we can, of course, do consults with only one family member and others will still be able to read the report and potentially catch up at any follow on appointments.
