Please read all questions carefully and answer to the best of your ability. Include all relevant information. Not all questions will apply to every dog. Detailed information is important for Dr. Ward to establish treatment. A well lled out history form will help to make the best use of the appointment time.
If multiple dogs are involved, please answer the questions as they apply for each dog.
This form should be completed by the actual pet owner or adult legal guardian and not by a third party.
Please return the completed Canine Behavioral History Form at least 3 business days prior to your dog’s appointment (the sooner the better for waitlisted appointments).
Initial appointments are approximately 2.0 hours in length. Follow-up appointments, if indicated, are 1.0 hour. However, longer follow-up appointments and remote appointments may be recommended in some cases.
Your dog should be hungry for the appointment. Please do not feed your dog a full meal within 6 hours of the appointment.
All persons who regularly interact with the dog should plan to attend the consult.
Please provide us with the professional courtesy of 72 hours notice if you need to cancel/reschedule appointments. Only a limited number of appointments are available each week, and a large block of time reserved for each one.
A credit card is used to hold the appointment. A $50.00 charge will be incurred for cancelled appointments. Payment is due at the conclusion of the appointment for all in-person appointments and 24 hours in advance for remote appointments. We accept cash, check, or credit card for payment.
