From vet students to veterinary practice and shelter staff, many professionals dread handling cats for clinical procedures, consider them difficult to manage, and to have a low threshold to aggressive behavior. Is that true or are we missing something that can make our work with domestic felines much easier? This lecture will explore the reasons of why cats get fearful and aggressive while handled, how to prevent escalation to aggression, and what tools and techniques can be used to make the life of vets and other professionals that handle cats easier and safer.
