Creating the Pet-Friendly Hospital, Animal Shelter, or Petcare Business (Lecture)
Many pets arrive at hospitals, shelters, and groomers afraid and confused. Careless or unskilled handling of these animals can often lead to negative consequences such as:
- Dog and cat bites and scratches (the top cause of worker compensation claims in veterinary hospitals and shelters).
- “Difficult” pets are time consuming to treat.
- Clients lose confidence in petcare professionals they see struggling to control their pets.
- Hospital staff may unknowingly send animals away medically improved, but behaviorally worse.
- This can leave patients more fearful of veterinary visits, or even more fearful of people in general.
But it doesn’t have to be this way!
The Creating a Pet-Friendly Hospital, Animal Shelter, or Petcare Business DVD teaches you how to enhance your practice by making dogs and cats feel secure both on the ride to the hospital, in the waiting room, in the exam room, and during treatments. Through Dr. Yin’s lectures you’ll gain confidence in your handling skills, increase credibility with your clients, and establish a more caring connection with your patients.
