With Ms. Jenn Barg, M.A, ACAAB  Emma Grigg, Ph.D., CAAB, and Ms. Traci Shreyer, M.A.

In recent years veterinarians have developed new approaches and a new terminology to describe their efforts to make veterinary visits easier for pets and people.  New terms like “pet friendly practice,” “low stress handling” and “Fear Free”™ veterinary visits are catching on – all hinting at kinder, gentler experiences for our pets and ourselves.

But what is really changing?  Haven’t veterinarians always been friendly to our pets? We know a veterinarian who for the 25+ years he’s been in practice has laid down on the floor of the exam room with fearful dogs in order to make friends – isn’t that a low stress approach?

Join us as we chat about these new approaches in veterinary medicine.  One of our Chatters, Dr. Emma Grigg, has been involved in research on this topic and can give us insights on pets’ reactions to veterinary clinic procedures.

We’ll also talk about the larger implications of pet friendly approaches to animal care and management. Ms. Jenn Barg has worked in animal shelters for many years and can tell us how equipment and approaches to handling fearful animals have changed.

And our third Chatter Ms. Traci Shreyer for 17 years taught low-stress handling techniques to veterinary students at The Ohio State University.

How can these ideas be applied to other pet professions such as grooming, dog training and boarding? What about applying them to the management and care of livestock, laboratory and zoo animals?  Can we help people change the way they handle pets in their own homes on a daily basis?  We’ll address those questions as well.

So join us for a most interesting CAABChat on this hot topic about changes in the ways pet professionals approach their work.
