Cooperative Care Visit
Do you experience difficulties when providing essential care, such as nail clipping, grooming, daily medication, dental care, or giving insulin injections to your pet?
Is your pet very nervous about being examined by the vet?
Has your vet suggested you sedate your pet prior to veterinary visits?
Cooperative care involves teaching you how to communicate with your pet by reading their body language as well as teaching your pet to voluntarily accept handling procedures. This is achieved through the use of positive reinforcement based training techniques.
Dr Cathy has extensive experience providing cooperative care to pets and coaching caregivers through the process.
