      Fear Free Animal Behavior Seminars

      Join us for animal behavior and handling seminars sponsored by Fear Free,  benefitting the Yolo County SPCA.  Saturday Nov. 16 5-6:30 pm:  Changing Perspective: Fear Free, A Kind Approach Many animals feel fear, anxiety, and stress at their veterinary visits. Fear Free techniques help to limit that fear, anxiety and stress. With patients less fearful and stressed, they are easier to handle, we can obtain more accurate readings of vital signs, they recover more quickly, and clients, animals, and you are happier. Fear Free techniques such as considerate approach, gentle control, and a touch gradient can be used to make vet visits more pleasant. This session provides an overview of the Fear Free approach to veterinary care. This will include methods for recognizing and reducing fear, anxiety, and stress in our cat and dog patients. Sunday Nov. 17:  11:30 am- 1 pm Feline Communication: How to Speak Cat With each purring meowful and swaying tail, cats are communicating with us.  Many animal professionals often express uncertainty about handling cats. The best way to know a cat’s emotional state and whether they are relaxed enough to cope with the stress of a medical procedure is to watch their body language. Feline body language, how scents affects cats behavior, cat vocalizations, helping cats through communication, and ways you can partake in cat chats will be discussed. Sunday Nov. 17  3-4:30 pm From Hiss to Purr: Keeping Kittens in Lifelong Loving Homes  While most foster kitten raisers focus on keeping the kittens medically healthy, it is also very important to socialize them well. This is what will keep them in lifelong loving homes. We want kittens to be outgoing, friendly, and social with many different people and in many different environments. You may have kittens that exhibit signs of being fearful or feral, but with the right strategies and techniques, they can be socialized into happy, loving, well-adjusted pets. I will detail techniques and methods aimed at transitioning these kittens into living comfortably in a home. While these techniques may be geared towards helping recently-outdoor kittens, these strategies can also be used to work with other fearful felines.
