Also available are Monday night education seminars – Right Start Puppy (the first Monday of the month) and Remedies for rescue Dogs (the third Monday of the month). Seminars are small groups (maximum of 10 people and require a minimum of 6 to run) and occur at 7 – 8pm. These seminars are without your dog. See group bookings.
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. Video footage is extremely useful. 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 WEDNESDAY before the appointment, to be fully reviewed by Dr Nicole. The Q can be completed ONLINE.
Owners are often asked to provide video footage.
Consultation cost is $385.00 (includes GST) and includes treatment notes and handouts relevant to your companion plus ongoing support via phone/email for a period of three months. Blood work, medications and behaviour modification training incur extra fees. Trainers are welcome to attend the consultation with their clients.
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.
