Session 1 – Five Elements of Animal Handling Large and Small Animal

5-element animal handling lends a unique perspective and insight into managing small animals in a veterinary clinic setting. By understanding the unique personality types based on Chinese medicine: Wood, Water, Fire, Earth, and Metal, the staff can adapt the behavioral approach depending on the 5-element personality type. Doctors can learn the most effective approach for each individual. 5-element animal handling promotes safety, efficiency and a positive experience for both handler and patient.
