My consultation room overlooks a tranquil garden setting where pets are very relaxed and both owners and pets enjoy their visit.
A long consultation is required, as natural therapies have an holistic focus and are highly individualised to meet your pet’s needs. Chronic health issues require up to a one-hour first consultation period. The second consultation requires up to 40 minutes and subsequent consultations are up to 30 minutes. Revisits are scheduled every four to six weeks when necessary.
The number of consultations required depends on the nature of your pet’s illness and how long it has been unwell. Chronic conditions that have been ongoing for many years need at least a four- to six-month treatment period to restore the body to a state of balance and well being.
The frequency of consultations will also vary depending on the therapy used. For example, the initial course of acupuncture or Bowen massage is weekly for up to four weeks and then the frequency is reduced. Because pets vary in their response to natural therapies, I individualise a treatment plan for every animal.
Whilst I cannot guarantee that I can help your pet I will certainly do my best. To arrange a consultation, telephone 03 9480 1823 during business hours (weekdays 9-6 and Saturday 9-1). Please note I do not make or change appointments by email or text.
Your involvement on the journey to your pet’s recovery is paramount.
Before the first consultation, please contact your conventional veterinarian and ask them to email or post your pet’s files to me. Also, to do the best for your pet it is advisable to write a short story about your pet under the following headings:
I would greatly appreciate receiving your pet’s conventional veterinarian files and your written story at least three business days before the consultation. This allows me time to review all the information before I see your pet. However, please bring a hard copy of your story to the consultation. Please do not email photographs or radiographs.
I do home visits within 10 kms of my practice for very ill pets or to put your much-loved pet to sleep.
Please note: For any changes to appointments
I require a minimum of three days’ notice by telephone only.
