This appendix includes 37 client handouts that can be used as part of your consultation. Each has a text box in the top right corner where you can add practice details. There are also questionnaires that have been designed for use by owners of dogs or cats with behavioural problems. The owner can be asked to fill in the form prior to, or during, the first behavioural consultation with the veterinary surgeon/counsellor. There is a Referral Form which is designed for use by general practitioners when referring cases for behavioural consultations; it is approved by The British Veterinary Behaviour Association and was produced after consultation with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. The form is the copyright of the BVBA but readers may print out and copy it for their own use. All of the handouts in this appendix are freely available to BSAVA members as part of their membership benefits (see client resources section).
