UNIVERSITY OF LINCOLN – ANIMAL BEHAVIOUR CLINIC

We are a referral only animal behaviour clinic.

In order for us to see a dog or cat for a behavioural consultation, we need a referral form and clinical history from the referring veterinarian and a history form from the owner.

CONSULTATION

Once we have received the veterinary referral form, a clinical history and the pets history form, we will be in touch to book you in for a behavioural consultation.

DAYS AND TIMES: Consultations take place Monday to Friday throughout the year. Please allow several hours for your visit as consultations can be up to three hours long for complex cases.

WHO: We usually ask you to bring all your pets and all members of the family to the consultation if possible.

VIDEO: In addition, if you have any video footage of your pet’s behaviour, please email the footage to us or bring the footage with you to the behaviour consultation. If you do not feel it is safe to video tape your pet’s behaviour, please do not attempt to make a video.

INSURANCE: If your pet is insured check if they are covered for behavioural problems. Although we cannot claim directly from the insurance company, we are happy to complete the necessary paperwork to enable you to claim the money back on your insurance. In all cases where further medical tests or medication are required these will be arranged and charged through the referring veterinary surgeon.

UP TO 3 MONTH FOLLOW UP SUPPORT

Follow up support is offered within 6 months of the initial consultation for the same presenting problem. Telephone and email follow up are included in the cost of the initial consultation of up to a period of 3 months after the date of this consultation. If a follow up consultation or 1-2-1 session are required, either within or outside of this 3 month period, these are charged additionally to the initial consultation fee.
