One of the biggest difficulties veterinarians face is providing high quality care to patients that are uncooperative and potentially dangerous to their care providers. Many dogs and cats that are aggressive at the hospital are loving and valued pets in other, less stressful contexts. This session will cover common reasons for aggression toward veterinarians and technicians, short and long term strategies for providing the care to these special needs animals as well as the prevention of fear, anxiety and aggression in vulnerable patients.
