We provide consultations for canine and feline behavioral problems. Consultations typically last 1 1/2 to 2 hours and involve collecting historical information, observing the pet or pets, establishing a diagnosis, and developing a personalized treatment plan. In some cases, additional diagnostic testing may be recommended during the consultation. Phone and email support with our behavior technician is provided at no additional charge to assist you in implementing the recommendations provided during the consultation. When additional recommendations are indicated, a phone or in-person recheck appointment may be required. Most patients return for one to three recheck appointments during the first year of treatment. Recheck appointments are typically 30 to 60 minutes long and occur at two- to three-month intervals, depending on the needs of the pet and family.
