I am always happy to discuss cases (whether you intend to refer or not) with my referring vets. My current office hours are 9-5 Tuesdays and Fridays and I will get back to you as soon as I can on my office days if you have any questions.
In accordance with both the RCVS and the APBC guidelines, all pets I see need to come via Veterinary referral.
For more information about costing and the behaviour consultation procedure can be found here.
To refer a patient please contact me with :
1. A summary of the behaviour – duration, presenting signs and what (if any) treatment has been carried out.
2. Full medical history – including any recent pathology results.
3. Contact details for the client, along with their consent for me to contact them. I will then get in touch with your client to book a consultation in. Alternatively, the clients can call me directly.
By sending this information to me, you are responsible for ensuring you have your client’s consent to share this information as part of a Veterinary referral.
After I have seen the client, I will contact you with a summary of my findings and recommendations. If the pet requires any further medical work up (bloods, imaging etc) I will refer them back to you for these – unless the patient requires and the client consents to seeing another specialist service (e.g neurology, dermatology etc).
I also offer in clinic CPD for referring vets, nurses and practice staff on a wide range of behaviour topics. Please feel free to get in touch to discuss your needs.
