Welcome to Behavioural Referrals

A referral service in behavioural medicine

COVID-19 Update

Our staff are continuing to work to provide our clients and patients with veterinary advice and care during this difficult time.

Following all current advice, we have had to adapt the way we work so that we can continue to care for your pets, ensure that both our staff and our clients are protected and adhere to all current measures identified by the government.

Our office is working in a remote format with all staff working from their homes. You can contact the practice office using the email office@brvp.co.uk or by telephone on 01244 377365. Please do not hesitate to call us if you have any concerns over your pet’s behaviour of if you are a veterinary practice seeking to refer a case. We are accepting referrals in the usual way and will contact the client to discuss how that referral can proceed in the current circumstances using video consulting as appropriate.
