Understanding rescue pet behaviour in the clinic setting
Rescue pets can present as challenging in the clinic setting with many displaying fear, anxiety and aggression towards staff. These behaviours can make routine exams and procedures difficult and stressful for staff, pet owners and pets alike. This webinar discusses why some adopted cats and dogs are fearful, anxious and aggressive during vet visits and how to work towards resolving these issues to reduce fear and stress, improve behaviour and welfare and to minimise the risk of injury to clinic staff.
