Behaviour problems may arise both directly and indirectly as a result of concurrent or previous medical problems. Veterinary involvement is therefore essential in eliminating organic causes of the problem and prioritising the diagnostic and treatment strategy to be used in any given case.
In order to safeguard the welfare of your patient and indicate your approval of referral or delegation to Zoe Demery and the rest of the Second Nature Behaviour team, please complete the following form. Please note that until a case is released to another veterinary surgeon then you, as the client’s normal veterinary surgeon, remain responsible for the treatment, advice and any prescriptions given.
As we are active in the training behaviourists working towards independent accreditation, pet behaviour students may sit in on your patient’s consultation, or advanced students may lead the consultation under the direct supervision of Zoe Demery. All students sign strict confidentiality agreements and are appropriately insured. If you would prefer your client not to be offered a student consultation, please let us know.
