Cats are one of the most popular pets for their ability fit in with the busy urban or country lifestyle.
Most of the time they will be fantastic companions but on occasions you may encounter a flare up of behaviour that you find unacceptable. Please contact me if you are finding your cat displaying any of the behaviours below.
Some common issues:
House soiling or spraying
General anxiety disorders
Socialisation issues between multi-cat households
Step 1, Initial contact
You can make initial contact via phone or email to discuss the type of problem you are experiencing and when you would like to arrange a booking. Please understand that I do not give advice over the phone.
Step 2, Fact finding
As a clinical animal behaviourist I require direct referral from your veterinary surgeon. This means completing some paperwork and agreeing to sharing your cats clinical history. A health check may be needed if your pet has not been seen in the last months or so. This is to ensure that your pet is healthy and to rule out any medical issues that may be causing behaviour problems. If your pet is suffering from any medical issues I can take this into account when designing a behaviour plan.
I will send out a questionnaire to gather as much information about your pet and lifestyle before the consultation. You will also be asked to record a diary of your pets behaviour.
Step 3, Behaviour consultation
This is a home visit that lasts approximately 1.5 hours. We will discuss the problem in detail specifically why the problem started and how it is being maintained. We will then design a plan to modify your pets behaviour and start to implement during this session.
Step 4, Aftercare
You will be sent a report reiterating what we discussed during the consultation, your vet will also be sent a summary report. You will receive 3 months support via phone or email, consisting of once a week catch ups to check you are on target with the plan and give you some moral support during this period.
