Pet Behavior History Analysis

Offer clients behavior solutions and keep the veterinarian-client-pet-relationship with the practice veterinarian. This is called a Veterinary Consulting Relationship.

The importance of combining behavior drugs and behavior modification is becoming recognized as critical to success in both human and animal behavior treatment programs.

When clients understand their pets' behavior, they are more satisfied with the results of behavior modification.

Veterinarians wanting their clients to benefit from this service or seeking more information, may call a Veterinary Behavior Technician or Dr. Rolan Tripp at 1-800-372-3706.

The veterinary behavior consultant supports trainers and veterinarians by coordinating the pet's behavior modification.

 Pet Behavior History Analysis

Step One:  The attending veterinarian faxes or calls in a request for follow-up with a client after recommending Dr. Rolan Tripp's Pet Behavior History Analysis and Consultation.

Step Two:  The  client is contacted on behalf of the veterinarian and offered the service.

Step Three:  If the client chooses to have the Analysis a phone Consultation appointment is made with Dr. Tripp. The client completes an extensive pet behavior history at home using the online PetEthogram

Step Four: The PetEthogram is reviewed by a Veterinary Behavior Technician who also requests labwork from the veterinarian for Dr. Tripp's review.

Step Five: In a one hour phone consultation appointment with Dr. Tripp, the PetEthogram is reviewed, clarified and a Pet Behavioral Profile is completed by Dr. Tripp.

Step Six:  Based on the Pet Behavioral Profile, the client learns probable causes for the pet's unwanted behaviors and the prognosis for improvement with treatment. The client is offered a Behavioral Treatment that will be coordinated with the attending veterinarian's behavior medicine.


Step SevenBothe client and veterinarian receive a written report that includes the pet's behavioral history, behavioral profile, prognosis and recommendations for treatment. Dr. Tripp follows up with the attending veterinarian to consult on the case.

The Analysis also provides pet parents with a one year follow-up program to learn more about pet behavior, through weekly Positive Pet Parenting
email lessons with links to online library topics, power point self study programs, and video education.


Ongoing encouragement and education for clients on pet behavior modification is key!
