Event description

Description

A morning seminar for vets and vet nurses on the topic of canine and feline aggressive behaviour with an emphasis on gold standard, low stress, safe handling procedures in the veterinary clinic.

Aggressive responses from the animals in our care are a potential welfare issue for those handling the animal, the owner and for the animal itself. This seminar aims to give delegates a thorough understanding of what causes canine or feline patients to aggress, and practical tools and strategies to reduce the potential for aggressive responses and to handle them safely, efficiently and with minimal stress.
