At Crofts Veterinary Practice, we understand the importance behavioural medicine plays in the triad of healthcare and the implications behavioural issues can have on the patient and the owner.
Our vet, Jade, has a keen interest in behavioural medicine and believes it plays an important part in the health and well-being of our patients. She is applying for a Master’s in Clinical Animal Behaviour, which will expand our range of services.
Currently, we can see medical cases requiring behavioural and medical management.
- management of cases which require more time and an environment suitable for nervous animals,
- assessment and advice on the management of behavioural cases, including fear-aggressive patients,
- work alongside clinical animal behaviourists and help organise referrals to ABTC-registered behaviourists.
- provide behavioural advice for new owners.
