The IRSEA has a clinical centre for the management of animal behavioural disorders. The CECBA has competent veterinary staff.
Care begins with a telephone or email contact, whether the case is referred by another veterinarian or a new case.
Each consultation is scheduled by appointment and preceded by the completion of an online questionnaire (in the case of a dog consultation) which will already collect the most important information about the animal's life, behaviour and clinical history. This information is supplemented by a thorough clinical visit of the animal and harvesting the examinations necessary to produce a functional diagnosis and prognosis for the establishment of the best behavioral therapy.

This therapy takes into account the emotional state of the animal, its cognitive-behavioural response and the best resources for proper rehabilitation or behavioural modification. With a competent veterinary staff (supervised by two graduates from the European College), and an efficient technical platform (video analysis systems, hormonal assays, immuno-histo-chemical analyses, semiochemical secretions analyses), the CECBA is designed as an advanced veterinary structure also serving education and training.
Equipped with three consultation rooms dedicated to the different species (dog, cat/NAC and horse) the centre is designed to match these specialties. Each room has a specific layout to help observe and allow the clinician to better understand why the owner decides to come to see us.
All rooms are equipped with cameras to enable CECBA clinicians to work from the recordings.
In the waiting room, no croquettes, you will find on sale products derived from our patents, pheromones like Feliway for example, but also all kinds of objects related to Behavioral Medicine, such as anti-glutton bowls or games to work cognitive abilities.
When we encounter a case, we look at whether the substance is truly behavioural.
All rooms are equipped with cameras to enable CECBA clinicians to work from the recordings. The videos, with the agreement of the owners, are also used in the training aspect, for which the CECBA is very involved.
When we encounter a case, we look at whether the substance is truly behavioural. Sometimes it comes from an organic problem, such as a urinary disorder. For this reason, we carry out biological analyses as well as internal medicine such as fibroscopy or biopsy in order to exclude the various hypotheses that are available to us.
All these additional analyses complement the consultation and provide guidance to practitioners in their diagnosis.
When the diagnosis is made, it is possible that the owner will leave with treatment. But most often it is behavioral rehabilitation, that is, educational sessions, which are offered. The owner will also have to invest himself because very often the advice is also for him.
