Behavioural Consultations

Many pets have behaviour problems that cause problems at home, and are significant enough for the owner to report them to the vet. The majority of dogs and cats with significant behaviour problems are not badly behaved or willfully naughty. Behavioural consultations are extended consultations, usually half to one hour.

Dr Isabelle Resch has her membership examinations in Animal Behaviour at the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists.  Dr Isabelle has been studying animal behaviour over many years, attending conferences and seminars, and liaising with behaviour specialists.

Behaviour medicine is a growing area with knowledge and expertise evolving every year around the world.

Problems such as anxieties, urinating and/or defecating in the unwanted places, aggression, fears and phobias, separation anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorders and cognitive dysfunction are commonly seen. These issues can often be successfully managed and treated. By kind behaviour modification techniques, subtle environmental changes and sometimes medication, we can help your pet become the happiest they can be!
