THIS WEBINAR IS FREE TO MEMBERS AND NON-MEMBERS: "Thru the AFP website non members just need to create an account"

If you have not taken the previous Feline-friendly Handling Webinar, we encourage you and your practice team to utilize this free online resource, as well as the 2011 AAFP/ISFM Feline-Friendly Handling Guidelines.

Understanding the cat is the foundation of feline-friendly handling. Cats are unique in that they are the only solitary hunter that can live amicably with people. They still however retain the behaviors of their wild ancestors, with strong protective mechanisms and keen senses to protect against perceived threats. Preventing feline stressors in veterinary practice prevents the negative emotions that trigger undesirable behavior responses. Feline-friendly handling also addresses all patients, including those that remain difficult to handle despite our best efforts, increasing human safety and job satisfaction while enhancing feline welfare.

Objectives for this webinar include:

Learn the reason behind different feline behaviors in the veterinary practice
How to prevent feline stressors that cause undesired behavior responses such as aggression
Hiding or the cat's ability to feel hidden is an important coping skill in an unfamiliar environment
Remaining in their desired location and position helps reduce fear, pain, and other negative emotions.
Stroking over the cat's preferred areas of touch – the pheromone-producing facial glands – helps to control head movement and replaces scruffing.
