Behavior plays a critical role in veterinary medicine, yet often receives little to no attention in professional education programs. Strengthen staff animal behavior knowledge with seminars, workshops, or lunch and learns. This not only provides insight into vital clues to pet health, but also improves safety, reduces stress for everyone involved, and helps establish a clinic as a vital public resource.
For clinics interested in reducing animal stress during exams, improving safety for staff during handling and procedures, and providing exceptional service, fear free information is available. Learn more about becoming a Fear Free Practice.
Intervention in problematic behavior as early as possibly not only makes things easier to address, it can also literally save lives. Veterinary staff are often the first ones that owners talk to about their concerns. The more informed the staff, the better equipped they are to make a difference, serve as a resource, and increase long-term client retention and referrals.

DOg Bite Prevention
"Don't worry, he's fine."
"She doesn't bite."
Professionals who encounter dogs during the course of their jobs hear it all of the time. While sometimes the dog may actually be fine, plenty of times they are not. Add to this the innate fear many professionals have from having been on the receiving end of aggression themselves or hearing the horror stories from coworkers.
In most cases, the dogs are actually good dogs responding to something they don't understand. In nearly all cases, the situation could have been prevented.
Dog bites aren't good for you, the dog, or the owner. Learn how to keep everyone safe with informative, fun, interactive staff training.
