Improving pet behaviour, improving quality of life

I specialise in treating canine and feline behaviour problems. My animal patients can ONLY be treated on vet referral, in case the presenting behaviour is due to or influenced by a physical malady or complaint. Upon booking, I will send you a referral form for your vet to complete.

I cover Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire. The cost of pet behaviour therapy is £600, including a consultation in your home, a written report, an online follow-up consultation and phone/email support for 12 months. Additional online consultations cost £100 per session. Most pet insurance policies cover pet behaviour treatment.

In terms of payment, you can pay by BACS transfer or securely online anytime after booking or during the consultation. A £100 non-refundable deposit is required to secure your appointment. There is also the option of paying in 3 interest-free instalments with a monthly plan online.

 

Home visits usually last 2-3 hours and the online follow-up consultation lasts an hour. This takes place approximately three weeks after the initial visit. There is a mileage surcharge of 50p per mile each way from base (CO10). For clients using payment plans, mileage will be invoiced separately. Bookings can be made online or you can contact me directly.

FAQs
 
What are the most common behaviour problems?
I see both canine and feline behaviour patients on veterinary referral and have worked extensively with aggression,   
anxiety, attention-seeking, compulsive disorders, messy problems and general control issues.

How can behavioural therapy help my pet?
As a clinical animal behaviourist, I can offer the time, expertise and experience needed to investigate why a problem has occurred. Treatment plans are then tailored to suit each pet, owner and situation, using only kind training methods. Together we can make a real difference to your pet's behaviour - improving the quality of life for your pet as well as you and your family.
 
What happens during the consultation?
The behaviour package I offer includes a one to one 2-3 hour consultation in your own home, where your pet is assessed, a full history is taken, diagnosis made and a treatment plan devised to help you modify your pet's behaviour. If possible, all family members should be present.

What happens after the consultation?
A behaviour report is sent to you and your referring vet and after care is provided for 12 months. A weekly diary of 
your pet's behaviour can be submitted after treatment so that I can provide regular guidance and give feedback while you are implementing the treatment plan. This helps to facilitate progress. Also included is a one hour online follow-up consultation, approximately three weeks after the initial visit. This is not a case of seeing a pet then moving on to the next one. I ensure my patients and their owners get a caring and thorough service.

Can I claim on my pet insurance?
In most cases, yes. APBC members (like myself) are recognised by leading pet insurance providers, so clients with suitable cover are able to claim for behavioural treatment (on veterinary referral).
