Our behaviour service serves cats, dogs, rabbits and guinea pigs and small furries.
We can support your concerns regarding abnormal behaviour, aggression to people or other animals, anxious or fearful behaviour, fear of the vets, other animals or people along with unwanted behaviours such as barking, destroying furniture and inappropriate toileting.
If you are finding that a certain aspect of your pets’ actions is effecting family balance or upsetting the life in general, we can support you with this.
We offer a full assessment to all patients – this includes evaluation of a questionnaire completed by yourself followed by in-depth consultation session which will be a minimum of one hour long and up to three hours. It will include thorough history taking leading to environmental optimisation advice, training guidelines, emotional management and therapy recommendations. A comprehensive report including a behavioural modification plan will be provided following the consultation.
The sessions can be carried out at the Clockhouse hospital our behaviourally focused Nailsworth surgery, at your home or virtually via Microsoft Team (full instructions will be provided) .
For animals with severe issues or those that are showing serve aggression we may recommend referral to a Certified Clinical Animal Behaviourist registered with the APBC, ABTC and ASAB and will offer full ongoing support during this process.
