- howling at night
- barking during the day
- fear of strangers or other animals

If the problem is not too involved, she is willing to help you at the hospital during the morning
08h00 - 12h30 Monday to Friday on 041-374 3034
However, if the problem is more involved (especially aggression and anxiety cases) then she will come to your home and do an in-depth consultation with you. Once the problems have been discussed and solutions have been made, Charnelle will contact you telephonically to follow up on your progress. You and your veterinarian will receive a consultation report with all the information recorded. Reports are issued within 5 working days. The consultation fee is R 350/per hour. Normal consultations take 2 hours. Aggression and anxiety consultations are more involved and may take 3-4 hours. Follow-ups are done telephonically or via email at no extra cost.
