Training Pets to Veterinary Procedures
Melissa Newcomb, DVM and Alicea Howell RVT, VTS (Behavior), KPA CTP (4.8 CE)
In a busy practice it can be hard to imagine taking the time to train animals to be more comfortable with veterinary procedures such as ear and eye exams, blood draws and nail trims. However, this wet lab will demonstrate how easy it can be to modify current procedures to greatly improve patient compliance and reduce stress. The outcome will not only be more comfortable patients, but also higher morale among the staff and less injuries! Much of this conditioning can be accomplished at regular appointments and the majority of it can be accomplished by the technicians.
The lab will be located at the Dane County Humane Society, 5132 Voges Rd, Madison, WI 53718
