Time management is one of the biggest challenges facing veterinary professionals. For clients with questions or complaints about behavior problems, the typical 15 minute appointment simply does not allow time for thoroughly assessing or helping them - particularly when questions are asked in the course of evaluating another problem or during a routine vaccination appointment.

In this session veterinary behavior expert Dr. E'Lise Christensen offers some practical ideas and tips for efficiently assessing and addressing behavior problems or issues reported by owners including triaging situations and immediately managing them.
