Behavioral Advice for Puppy and Kitten Clients
This lecture has been RACE Approved for 0.5 CE hour of continuing education credit for veterinarians.
Veterinarians are the first, and sometimes only, professionals that pet owners seek advice from, even behavioral advice. It is therefore critically important that veterinarians and veterinary technicians learn about behavior so that they can give their clients the most sound behavioral advice possible. This is especially important when it comes to clients with a new puppy or kitten. The behavioral advice that you provide to these clients now could affect the future behavior of these pets. This lecture discusses the important behavioral advice you should be providing to puppy owning clients (proper socialization, housetraining, chewing, and bite inhibition) and kitten owning clients (litterbox, scratching, and proper play behavior).
