Support for Vets

Animal Behaviour Veterinary Practice offers services in small animal behavioural medicine. In addition we deal with behavioural implications of medical disorders. For those clients not initially referred by a veterinary surgeon we will work closely with the client’s own veterinary surgeon and following a behavioural consultation may recommend the investigation of medical conditions that could contribute to behavioural disorders. Should medication be required post-behavioural consultation this will also be discussed with the client’s own veterinary surgeon. Telephone advice and support is available for vets who wish to discuss cases prior to or after referral. Referring vets also receive a copy of the behavioural report sent to clients.
