Is Your Cat a Good Candidate for a Behavior Consultation?

Probably, but this is our clinic efficacy guarantee policy:  We know you are loving cat owners wanting the best for your cats and we are here to offer our guidance and expertise.  If after the clinic reviews your completed feline behavior history form it’s determined a consultation would not be appropriate or effective for your cat(s), the clinic will refund your consultation fee, but still hold a short consultation at no charge to let you know what kind of help would be the most beneficial for your cat behavior problem.

It’s important to work with an experienced cat behaviorist, but most importantly, one with formal study in animal behavior and a track record of proven results. The benefits of working with a cat behaviorist who really understands the latest in feline behavior can literally last you for years. (Like driving lessons, typing lessons, or a parenting class). A consultation with Mieshelle is nothing less than an investment towards a happier and problem-free cat — and toward your sanity. The advice, knowledge, and tools you’ll get during and after your consultation, as well as the traps (and products) to avoid, will repay you many times over.

Clinic Policies: Cancellation, refund, or reschedule policy is a minimum of 48 hours notice required regardless of when the the appointment was scheduled. There are no refunds given for gift certificates or consultations purchased for a third party.  They are transferable, however, and can be donated to a shelter or another cat owner. No refunds are given for unused “leftover” consultation time and all allotted appointment time must be used in either the 4 or 8 week initial program.  Clients past their program time can schedule a follow-up consult of up to one-hour for $150.00 if deemed appropriate by the clinic for your behavior issue.  Certain issues require a new consultation especially if it’s been several months since your last consult or you have a different behavior issue.  You must complete the behavior history questionnaire prior to your appointment time in order to have a consultation unless the behaviorist allows to waive this step.  Please note our pricing changed as of February 1st, 2019 and this will not effect clients prior to this date.

In-home local consultations are accepted on a case by case basis by Dr. Jim Shultz DVM or Mieshelle Nagelschneider and rates are determined by your location and nature of behavior issue, but normally begin at $1200.00 (plus flight and hotel accommodations if you are out of state). Dr. Shultz performs in-home consults locally only.  The majority of our clients schedule phone or video consultations with Mieshelle.

The value you receive goes well beyond the cat issue you have today. Because we truly educate our clients on how cats act and behave — and especially how their behavior is totally different from the dogs that most people unconsciously use as models — our clients are able to more knowledgeably raise and enjoy cats for as long as they have cats.  Mieshelle’s most recent study of animal behavior was at Oxford and Harvard University and she has written the first scholary-cited cat behavior book for cat owners that has been published in 4 languages (with co-writer Cameron Powell).
