Justyna Ratczak. DVM, PG Dip (CABC) MRCVS

Justyna graduated in 2001 and has been working at Abbey House Veterinary Hospital since October 2009.

She holds a post graduate diploma in Companion Animal Behaviour Counselling from Southampton University and is a provisional member of the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors.

This is an association of experienced and qualified pet behaviourists who work on a referral basis from veterinary surgeons.

As well as managing behavioural problems she is equally concerned with their prevention and the behavioural considerations of everyday life.

She is happy to help with many different  types of behavioural problems for example feline and canine aggression, house soiling and separation anxiety as well as the more unusual cases.

Please contact the Morley hospital on 0113 2525818 to arrange a referral appointment.

A behaviour questionnaire will need to be completed and returned to Justyna prior to the consultation. Consultations are approximately 1+1/2 to 2 hours and usually take place in the surgery, but house visits can be arranged.
