Fractious feline? Got a dog coming in that requires a muzzle? The high pressures of working in practice can often affect the handling animals in order to get the job done quickly. This talk looks at some welfare friendly examples of handling cats and dogs, while still enabling you to work efficiently. It looks at recognising subtle signs of stress in body language and facial expression, discusses learning theory, and offers practical suggestions to help both in everyday life and also in the long term. It also introduces the Dog Friendly Practice scheme. Ultimately, reducing fear and anxiety in our patients will improve the animals’ experience, bond the owners to our practice, and be less stressful for everyone involved!
