I am very proud to be able to tell you that as of the 25th August this year I have been officially recognised by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) as an Advanced Practitioner in Companion Animal Behaviour.
Inclusion on the list of Advanced Practitioners demonstrates that I hold an appropriate qualification and have stayed up to date in the area of Companion Animal Behaviour. Pet owners looking for a vet with behavioural qualifications can search the RCVS database as can Veterinary Surgeons looking to refer a behaviour case.
In this largely unregulated field it is important that you ensure that the behaviourist that you are working with has the knowledge and experience to formulate a plan for you and your pets. As a qualified Veterinary Surgeon I am also able to prescribe medication if this is appropriate for your pet.
