Dog and cat bites are the most common cause of injury in the veterinary hospital or pet care setting. Many of these injuries can be avoided simply by understanding why they occur and recognizing the signs early on. In this presentation you’ll learn to recognize the body language of fear and anxiety in dogs and cats, how seemingly innocuous behaviors can quickly progress to aggression, and ways that people handling and greeting these pets may inadvertently make the behavior worse. You’ll see how a more thoughtful and well-planned approach to handling these pets can help you quickly win their trust, allowing you to breeze through situations that would have otherwise led to drama and stress for all involved.
