Dr. Hannah Mercurio at Betty Baugh’s Animal Clinic now offers behavior consultations for canine and feline behavioral problems. Consults with the pet and owner usually last 45 minutes to 1 hour and involve collecting historical information, observing the pet, establishing a diagnosis, and outlining and treatment plan. When appropriate, diagnostic testing will be recommended and procedures can be performed during your pet’s appointment for your convenience. If indicated by the diagnosis, drug therapy may be a component of the treatment program. Phone and email support is provided at no additional charge to assist you in implementing the treatment recommendations that are provided during the assessment; when additional recommendations are indicated, a phone or in-person recheck may be required.
