Reducing stress to your pet
The initial consultation - information requested
If coming to see me for the first time with your pet, please note the following:
- I will want to discuss the husbandry of your pet
with you as part of an overall assessment of him/her. Ideally please fill in and submit a history form and the appropriate husbandry form from this page: Client forms. Doing so fully will result in a reduction to the consultation fee.
Some of the information I will ask about, and which you should therefore have to hand, includes:
The enclosure (vivarium/tank/etc)
Substrate type & furnishings
Cage companions & other pets
Heating and lighting arrangement, temperatures
Room it is located in - background heating, lighting and activity levels.
Possible exposure to fumes - smoking/cooking fumes/boiler/heating fumes/air fresheners/other aerosols.
- I will normally want to examine a faeces sample from your animal as part of the overall health assessment, so please bring one along if possible. The sample should generally be as fresh as possible (if kept moist, a fews days is generally okay), and kept in a sealed container with a little bit of water to keep it moist.
