Consulting Agreement

Pet Behavior History Analysis

The ABN Pet Behavior History Analysis is a consulting opinion that can be requested for any individual case.

It is the sole responsibility of the ADVM to perform all medical services and prescriptions. ABN does not offer medical services but will make suggestions to the ADVM.  

Note: The Veterinary Behavior Consultant sends a report to the ADVM who may edit, add, change, delete, or other wise change the behavioral suggestions.     


  • Client completes online PetEthogram™. 
  • A Veterinary Behavior Technician (VBT) calls the client to review and complete the PetEthogram™. 
  • The behavior history is analyzed by a Veterinary Behavior Consultant (VBC).
  • The VBC faxes a report to the attending veterinarian (ADVM) recommending medical and behavioral treatments.
  • The ADVM is encouraged to consult with the VBC and VBT on the case
  • The attending veterinarian decides on final recommendations to client.
  • he client may elect to purchase ongoing telephone and email support, which is charged directly to the client, and provided under supervision of the VCPR or the ADVM. 
  • The client is offered a treatment plan. Progress reports are sent to the ADVM.

We retain comprehensive computer-based behavioral records of the animal’s case. Updates are faxed or emailed to the ADVM. The ADVM can ask questions, give data, or request a consult by calling Behavior Consult Support at 800-372-3706.
