Dr Nicole consults every Tuesday from Murdoch University’s THE ANIMAL HOSPITAL, Perth, Western Australia. Cases are seen through the primary care entrance of THE ANIMAL HOSPITAL Nyarrie Drive, Murdoch.
To make an appointment ring 1300 652 494 (extension 4) and request a questionnaire from our friendly nursing staff.
For returning clients a 30 minute follow up appointment (reduced fee) can be arranged.
Dr Nicole sees veterinarian referred cases, as well as owner or trainer referred. Both canine and feline cases are seen.
A consult is approximately one hour conducted after an extensive questionnaire is completed. The aim of the questionnaire is to save consultation time on history taking but to still get a thorough history as to the origin of the problem. All aspects of the animal’s life are examined through the questionnaire. Answer it as completely as you can. The questionnaire is a vital part of the consultation and is relied on to make an accurate diagnosis. Clients should allow at least 30 minutes to an hour to complete this and it should be returned on the Thursday before the appointment, to be fully reviewed by Dr Nicole.
Owners are often asked to provide video footage.
Consultation cost is $320 and includes an individualised written report and ongoing support via phone/email for a period of three months. Blood work, medications and behaviour modification training incur extra fees.
Most animals will require ongoing work with an experienced behavioural trainer one on one, recommended by Dr Nicole, and some animals will be prescribed medication to speed their improvement.
