Many dogs are concerned with veterinary visits. So what can you do to help them? Can you recognise the signs at the time of their first visit? Can you help each dog at each visit? How best to implement "Fear Free" visits will be discussed - from the time of their first visit. Prevention of problems to helping those who are already concerned.

In this seminar, Dr Kersti Seksel will be presenting practical tips with interesting videos and photos to illustrate recognising anxieties in animals before anything happens. The Fear Free principles, which is now an international movement for veterinary professionals and has been adopted in the USA, will also be discussed and emphasised.

This seminar is aimed at all levels of staff.
