Behavior Consultations

Our mission is to diagnose and treat common behavioral problems in companion animals. These include:

  • Aggression/Anxiety Disorders
  • Elimination Disorders
  • Phobias and Fears
  • Sterotypic/Compulsive Behaviors

The full consultation involves review of history forms and in-person interview followed by discussion of the diagnosis and treatment plan.  Additional support via phone and email is included with the cost of the consultation fee to assist in implementing the treatment recommendations.  The full consultation can last from 1-2 hours and follow up appointments are typically 30-60 minutes in duration.  Therapy of behavior disorders can be complex and time consuming, so a commitment to the pet is essential to increase the likelihood of success.  

Prior to the appointment, we will send you a behavior questionnaire (or you may choose to download it directly from the site).  We also ask you to have your regular vet send over a year's worth of your pet's medical history, plus any lab results.
