Implementing Low Stress Handling into the Academic Setting
Low stress handling is becoming a common practice in veterinary clinics. In order to prepare students for the profession, teaching institutes must provide an environment that allows students to understand and implement methods of handling while decreasing the stress and anxiety of animals. It is important for veterinary technician educators to provide training on strategies to create and implement a low-stress environment for animals. It is equally as important for those institutions housing animals to apply low stress techniques when working with housed animals.
