Phone Consultations  
My work is done by phone.  People set up an appointment by e-mail and then call at
the appointed time for the consultation.  You do not need to be with your pet when
you call.  I need  the phone to talk with humans, not with the animals; their language
is telepathic.   I set my fee schedule by time so that people can talk with more than
one animal in the same consultation.

Fee Schedule
                                                  15 minutes          $45.00 U.S.

                                                 30 minutes          $65.00 U.S.

                                              Payable by Master Card or Visa.  

                              General  Information

Appointments are set up by email.  

My number is  309-797-3489.  I live in the Central time zone.  

I do calls mornings and evenings/nights  Monday through Thursday.  
Appointments  must be scheduled in advance.   

I have only one phone line so my line is often busy.   
We do not have an answering machine.

                              Steps to Set up a Consultation

1 - Include your name, city / State or Province and time zone.
   (So I can do the time zone conversion.)

2 - I do calls Monday through Thursday in the mornings and the evenings/nights.
           Tell me what days (dates) are best for you and what time ranges are best
           for you on each of those days.

3 - Send your message to   

4 - Check your email often.  If I am home, I try to reply within  24 hours.  If you miss
             the email with the appointment, or do not confirm the appointment in a
             reasonable time, I may give the time to someone else.  It may be a while
             before I have another opening.

5 - When you get my message with a day and time for the consult, please send a
           reply confirming this time.
           Unconfirmed appointments may be given to emergency calls.

6 -  Call me at the appointment time at 309-797-3489.
           If the line is busy, please give me a few minutes and try again.  Sometimes
           I get behind in my schedule.

                                            Before You Call ...  

I always suggest that people make a list of questions that they would like to ask their
pets.   Some folks have specific questions about behaviors and problems.  You may
also want to ask if they have any aches or pains.  I am not a veterinarian and can
not diagnose an illness, but it will often help the doctor to know how your pet feels -
where it hurts and what kind of pain it is (ache, sharp, throbbing, etc.).  Knowing that
your friend is nauseous or has an upset stomach can sometimes help your vet find a
suitable treatment.  

   When you call for your consultation...  

Have your questions ready and be prepared to jot down the answers your pet gives.  
Some folks ask another person to listen in and take notes.  I will also need your
credit card information.  I can accept only Master Card or Visa.

All I will need to know about your pet is:
  their name
  the animal's location  - State / Province  and  city
  the species, breed, and color
