Recheck appointments and follow up
In the majority of cases, we recommend a recheck visit 8-12 weeks after your initial appointment. Recheck visits are economically billed in increments of time with most rechecks lasting 30-60 minutes. In-person rechecks allow us to gain the detail necessary to make sure you are moving forward towards your goals, allow us to observe your pet and the effect of medications if any were prescribed, and then to discuss together the next steps in the process. Typically we will recommend recheck appointments every 8-12 weeks until your dog is stable and every 6 months after that. Most patients require a single recheck at the 8-12 week mark before going on an every 6 month recheck schedule. Some clients prefer to stay with us for long term care of their pet's behavior concerns. Others prefer to transfer their pet's care back to their regular veterinarian once the pet is stable. We happily accommodate either option. As a part of your commitment to bringing about the desired changed for your pet, we depend on you to provide us with regular progress updates.
