Small Animal Behaviour
We can help!
Michelle can help with ALL companion pets, not only cats and dog! Smaller, but no less important pets, like rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs and birds also often need help. Michelle is dedicated to promoting understanding and improving the relationship between owner and pet.
A behavioural consultation consists of a visit to your home, which will last approximately 2 hours. Thereafter you will receive a copy of the consultation, a written consultation report sent to you referring veterinarian (where applicable) a detailed and individually tailored behavioural modification programme for you and your pet, completion of insurance form (if applicable) and follow up support as required.
Contact us below, to see how we can help.
Step 2 - questionnaire
While you're waiting for your vet to complete the referral form, please email us with full details of your pets behavioural issues. You’ll need to send this to us, with the vet referral form, before the consultation so we have an understanding of the problems you're having.
Step 3 - consultation
The behaviour consultation will be carried out in your home, so that your pet can be seen in their own environment.
The duration of the consultation is 1.5-2 hours. During this time detailed notes about your pet's history will be taken. The problem behaviour will be identified and we will be able to give an explanation on what has caused the problem behaviour, and give advice on how to change the behaviour.
Step 4 - written report
After your consultation, you will receive a comprehensive written report detailing the behaviour modification programme for you to follow with pet.
Step 5 - follow-up support
A 1 hour follow up support by phone or email is provided at no extra cost for one month after your consultation.
Unfortunately, there are no quick-fixes to improving behavioural problems in pets. It takes patience and consistency, but it can be done and I'll support you through it. In many cases it may be necessary to visit you again or provide additional training (please see below for fee details).
Behavioural Consultation with 1 Hour Follow-up:
A Behavioural consultation is £240. This includes the consultation session, the written report and a 1-hour follow-up phone/ zoom call within 4 weeks after the initial consultation. Additional follow-ups are £70 per hour.
Clients that have their pet insured may wish to check their policy, as many pet insurance companies will cover a partial/ full cost of a Behavioural Consultation with Michelle, due to her qualifications. Most claim forms need not be signed by the referring veterinary surgeon.
