Behaviour Triage appointments in General Practice

Presentation Description

Institution: the vet collective - Queensland, australia

All behaviour cases should start with an animal's primary veterinary care provider. This professional has a relationship with the patient and owner and can rapidly identify behavioural changes and possible underlying physical maladies. From there, as with any other case, the sooner diagnostics, diagnoses, treatment (+/- referral) occur, the better the prognosis. 

A behaviour triage appointment is a practical way to open a dialogue with pet owners about behavioural concerns, and to commence the necessary diagnostics, treatment or referral. They are efficient, convenient for clients, useful for all manner of clinician (regardless of interest level in behaviour cases!) and subsequently offer major benefits for our patients.
