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.
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.
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
