Transform your practice!
Are you still routinely scruffing cats, stretching them out for jugular venipuncture, and using leather gloves for the ones hissing at the back of the cage? If so, you may be straying from the guidelines on physical restraint of animals set by the American Veterinary Medical Association in 2012, which says,
"The method used should provide the least restraint [of an animal] required to allow the specific procedure(s) to be performed properly, should minimize fear, pain, stress and suffering for the animal, and should protect both the animal and personnel from harm. Every effort should be made to ensure adequate and ongoing training in animal handling and behavior by all parties involved, so that distress and physical restraint are minimized."
In this instructional DVD, Dr. Yin leads you through seven toweling techniques that will help keep potentially difficult cats calm and relaxed rather than eliciting anxiety and aggression. Each wrap is broken down step-by-step allowing you to practice along, first using stuffed animals and then using cats. By the end of this DVD you'll have the confidence you need to handle difficult cats in a caring, efficient, and safe manner.
Handle even difficult cats with confidence and ease with these towel-wrapping techniques.
