Canine and Feline Consultations

A consult is approximately 60 - 90 minutes 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.


The questionnaire is a vital part of the consultation and is relied on to make an accurate diagnosis. 


The consultation 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.
