Working from Home

#1

Behavior Intake

Behavior Therapy Technician

 This first appointment is to enable our team to collect a thorough understanding of the behavior problems you are struggling with at home.  We have you fill out our intake form in advance and then a specially trained Behavior Therapy Technician will perform a detailed interview and behavioral observation to create a picture from which we can design your tailored treatment plan.  From there, the technician can help you decide which of our services may be most appropriate for your pet.  Immediate interventions are advised to hold you over until we can really get the ball rolling!

#2

Dr. Fagen

After completing an intake appointment, a phone appointment is set up between Dr. Fagen and your veterinarian.  Your pet's intake appointment notes and medical records are reviewed in advance of this appointment as well as any submitted videos.  Dr. Fagen will discuss the case directly with your veterinarian so you both can get specialist guidance on how to proceed medically.  Possible medical contributions to the behavior problems as well as recommended treatments will be discussed.  A plan will be developed and sent to your vet and your Behavior Therapy Technician.

Follow Up Teleconsult

Dr. Fagen

As many of these can be scheduled as needed to provide additional guidance for continued management of your case.  There is inherently a trialing process in the treatment of veterinary behavior cases and it is typical for cases to require tinkering before a firm treatment approach is established.  We are here to support your veterinarian through this.   

$69 (not inclusive of your veterinarian's fees to cover their time investment)

Note, because our doctors do not have direct contact with clients through this service, and are essentially hired as a consultant to your veterinarian, all medical questions should be directed toward your veterinarian.  Behavioral support questions can be directed towards our Behavior Therapy Technicians. We cannot dispense medical advice outside the context of a valid veterinary-client-patient relationship.
