Lisa Carvell BVSc BSc MRCVS has a keen interest in small animal behavioural medicine. She was awarded a Diploma in the Practical Aspects of Companion Animal Behaviour and Therapy from the Centre of Applied Pet Ethology in 2008. This enables Lisa to assess and compile a behavioural modification programme for both cats and dogs with behavioural disorders.
Lisa offers clinic based behavioural consultations at all three County Vets’ practices and house visits when required within close proximity of the practices. She request that all pets have a full check up with their regular vet first to identify any medical conditions which may be having an impact on the pet’s behaviour prior to referral for a behavioural assessment.
The initial consultation which involves taking a thorough history takes approximately 1.5 hours and as many family members as possible should attend.
If you would like to refer your pet for assessment please ensure that your pet has had a full medical check and then ask your vet to arrange referral. County Vets will then call you to arrange your pet’s initial consultation.
Information for referring vets

A copy of the report will be forwarded after the consultation to update your patient’s history.
