Our behaviour service is open to cats, dogs, rabbits and guinea pigs. If you have concerns regarding abnormal behaviour, aggression to people or other animals, inappropriate toileting, anxious or fearful behaviour, fear of the vets, other animals or people please contact us for a consultation.
We offer a full assessment to all patients – this includes completion of a questionnaire and a minimum of an hour-long session in the practice or at your home.
Following this assessment, you will be provided with a behavioural modification plan and a personal recommendation for treatment and training.
This will be fully supported from our Clockhouse hospital; our behaviourally focused Nailsworth surgery and at your home.
For animals with severe issues or those that are showing severe 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.
