Resisting handling or restraint, vocalization, and aggression are common manifestations of fearful dogs and cats in the veterinary practice setting or in those requiring minor procedures (radiographs, toe nail trims, etc). These responses can create stress for the veterinary team and your clients. In addition, fear-based aggression presents a danger to personnel. This session will focus on these issues and offer practical suggestions for dealing with these patients and encouraging stress-free visits for your patients.
