During your consultation, a detailed history will be taken and the underlying emotional motivations for the problem behaviour will be discussed. The veterinary behaviourist then forms an accurate diagnosis of the underlying reason for your pet’s behaviour and devises a practical behaviour modification treatment plan that is tailor made for you and your pet. This initial consultation is theory based and is best attended by all of the members of the household. A summary of the consultation will be provided in written form.

In order for your pet to remain under our care, you are required to have a veterinary consultation every 6 months.

Follow up consultations (Rehabilitation):

The Rehabilitation skills coaches carry out the follow up consultations for our canine patients. These consultations will be conducted either remotely via video link, or at our rehabilitation and assessment centre at Oak Bank Stables. Our clinic offers a controlled “away from home” environment and includes a series of dog proof paddocks and a mock veterinary consulting room. This facility enables us to limit unexpected exposure to other dogs or people and to set up controlled introductions to problematic stimuli and contexts.

The Rehabilitation Team offer one-to-one consultations where they will discuss tailored, more in-depth advice for your pet, as well as looking at teaching and coaching you through specific training techniques recommend as part of the behavioural modification programme.

We encourage you to keep in regular contact with us so we can continue to support you and your pet through their behavioural modification plan.
