Creating Happier Vet Visits in the Time of Covid
Curbside service and other changes associated with the Covid pandemic have resulted in some big changes in the way we see patients. Separating pets from their owners can increase anxiety from the moment we reach for them to the moment we begin the examination. In this session:
  • Recognize the early signs of fear and anxiety.
  • Understand that the different ways in which different animals cope with stress is critical if we are going to decrease the patients fear of the veterinary visit and keep the veterinary team safe.
  • Learn how to use a low stress approach, pheromones and appropriate food rewards so we can make the visit easier on everyone and bond pet owners to our practice.
Preventive Behavior Care for the General Practitioner
Pet behavior problems are a leading cause of patient loss and yet many of these problems are preventable. This presentation will focus on:
  • How to educate pet owners about normal pet behavior within the limits of an average veterinary appointment.
  • The basic principles of safe and effective behavior modification.
  • The most common issues facing owners of new puppies and kittens as well as some common-sense approaches to dealing with them
