Please note that our service area has changed since Dr. Hicks moved south to Gig Harbor. We still provide services throughout the Puget Sound region. Our expanded service area extends north to Seattle, west to Silverdale, east to Bonney Lake, throughout the greater Seattle area, and as far south as Olympia. Our service is tailored to cats and their families.
We recognize that finding a house call veterinarian who focuses on feline care can be difficult. We are happy to provide services for clients outside our usual service area for an additional fee and will travel throughout western Washington to serve our feline patients.
Dr. Hicks is committed to your ensuring the bond between your family and your cat remains strong. After assessing your cat’s behavior and environment, she will provide a detailed diagnosis and treatment plan for your cat. She creates compassionate, innovative, and achievable solutions to your cat’s unique needs, and offers regular follow up to track your cat’s progress.
Dr. Hicks will collaborate with you and your primary care veterinarian throughout the treatment process. The first step is to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and complete the behavior history form we send. We also require the last year of medical history for your cat. You may contact your primary care veterinarian to e-mail the records directly to Dr. Hicks. As medical problems may contribute to behavioral challenges, Dr. Hicks may request laboratory tests prior to a behavioral consultation. These tests would need to be performed by your primary care veterinarian.
After reviewing your cat’s behavior and medical history, Dr. Hicks will schedule a house call. The consultation will last approximately 60 minutes and include discussion of your cat’s diagnosis and demonstration of treatment strategies. A detailed treatment plan will be e-mailed to you and your primary care veterinarian. Medication may be prescribed if indicated. Six months of phone and/or e-mail follow-up are included with your consultation.
Remote Behavioral Consultations
We understand that not everyone desires an in-home veterinary visit, or may live outside of our service area. Dr. Hicks offers a partnership with your primary care veterinarian to offer solutions to your cats’ behavioral challenges. To pursue a remote consultation, please ask your primary care veterinarian to e-mail us at email@example.com. We will provide a detailed behavioral history questionnaire to them and request the last year of medical history for your cat. We will e-mail you an invoice that you may pay electronically. Dr. Hicks will e-mail a detailed report including diagnosis and treatment plan to your veterinarian. This service includes three months of follow up e-mail or phone collaboration with your veterinarian.
