Referrals

 

Cats can be sociable creatures if raised with other cats but in general sometimes struggle to cope within households when additional cats are introduced. Common problems we encounter in multi-cat households can include inappropriate toileting, aggression towards the other cats or towards their owners and marking behaviour. It is not only in multi-cat households where problems can arise, single cats can become anxious if changes occur in the household or if there is a large community of unfamiliar cats in their locality. Would you like your vet to refer your cat to the clinic? Please download (Click Here) a case history questionnaire and referral form and once you and your vet have completed them, please phone the clinic for an appointment.

Cats

Small Furries such as rabbits, chinchillas, hamsters, rats and guinea pigs have differing behavioural needs but do have similar common behaviour problems. Being prey animals they can find their environment threatening especially if inappropriately handled or in unsuitable housing. Fear can lead to problems such as biting, general aggression, fur plucking and urine spraying.  Access to plenty of space and places to explore and hide will help decrease anxiety and alleviate boredom.

Furries

Parrots are highly sociable and intelligent creatures and need companionship from either their own species or humans. Many problems occur from parrots being left alone for long periods with little or no physical or mental stimulation, or the opposite where the parrot is unable to relax due to being in a constantly busy environment. Common behaviour problems are self mutilation and feather plucking, aggression, constant screaming, biting and depression. Would you like your vet to refer your bird to the clinic?

Parrots

Horses are herd animals needing the companionship of their own species to really feel relaxed and confident within their environment. Being prey animals they can become fearful so calm, confident but kind handling can avoid common problems such as aggression, kicking, bucking, napping and biting. These behaviours can also be linked to ill fitting tack or medical issues which should be ruled out as a priority. Stereotypic behaviours can occur if an animal is either is living in or has previously experienced an environment that is stressful or doesn’t provide enough opportunities for stimulation to avoid this ensure your equine has company, has good nutrition and has access to plenty of grazing daily.
