The Veterinary Professional's Role in Dog Bite Prevention
As veterinary professionals we see dogs in what is often their most challenging setting. Does the owner’s interaction and response to troublesome behavior give us a hint about what is happening at home? Should we be paying attention? Dogs often respond to restraint, with or without pain, by growling, snapping, snarling, and biting. Such reactions can often be prevented by teaching dogs to accept frightening and even unpleasant procedures calmly and without restraint. Such practices allow veterinarians to use their unique authority with pet owners to: -Demonstrate respect for the animal -To speak for the animal, and to -Model sound behavioral hygiene (i.e., how you interact with and what you do with a dog). Alternatives to restraint will be addressed, along with how to model and explain these techniques to clients to avoid possible conflict interactions with their dogs at home, while increasing compliance with follow-up instructions. At the end of the presentation there will be a question and answer period where participants may have specific case studies addressed.
