It is very beneficial to owners and dogs to treat behaviour problems. It can also be a benefit to your practice to work with The Behaviour Clinic, in providing an enhanced range of services..
Dogs that have behaviour problems put your staff and clients at risk and it can take extra time to carry out procedures.
We are available to answer any questions that your clients or staff may have and can advise them on how to proceed if needed. We are happy to offer advice on the behavioural symptoms that frequently co-exist with medical problems.
Why The Behaviour Clinic?…
Since 1999 we have been working closely with veterinary surgeries offering behavioural support.
Principal Pet Behaviour Consultant, Helen Jarratt, is a Certified Clinical Animal Behaviourist (CCAB) recommended for referral by the BSAVA, and is a member of both the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors (APBC) and the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT). Being a member of the APBC means that your client will more than likely be able to claim the fees from their insurance company.
The Behaviour Clinic is a long standing, professional and successful business fully insured with both Professional Indemnity and Public Liability Insurance. The Behaviour Clinic practices in Salisbury, Winchester, Basingstoke and surrounding areas. Please read Testimonials from clients that we have helped.

How to Refer?…
What happens next?…
We contact the client and arrange a consultation at their convenience.
During the 2-3 hour consultation the full behavioural history is taken and diagnoses formed. An explanation of behaviours is provided and then a bespoke modification programme using Behaviour modification techniques is carried out. These scientific techniques are designed to be carried out by owners of all ages and abilities.
A summary report will be sent to the referring veterinarian, a full report is available on request. Any subsequent consultations will be arranged with the client and a subsequent report will be sent to the referring veterinarian.
What if drugs are required?…
We try to avoid the use of drug therapy where possible.
It is often possible to achieve the desired improvements using behavioural modification alone. If drugs may be required we will contact the referring Veterinarian to discuss and then client will make an appointment to see them.
Claiming fees on Insurance…
The fees can often be claimed on the client’s pet insurance. Most insurance companies require the vet to agree to refer the client to us, simply telling them to contact us is sufficient. The client then brings the claim form into you with our invoice and then it requires completion by the veterinary practice. The veterinary surgeon is required to sign the form for the client to reclaim fees.
Please note that references from other referring veterinarians are available on request.
