Welfare friendly examination procedure of dogs and cats without the owner

Many veterinarians are required to conduct clinical examinations on their patients without the presence of the owners due to numerous Covid restrictions.

Understandably, this can be stressful for both the animals and their owners. Without them, cats and dogs might become anxious and fearful.

The FECAVA and the European Society of Veterinary Clinical Ethology (ESVCE) have created flyers to help owners and veterinarians make those visits more comfortable. These flyers include useful tips on how to approach animals and prepare them for a veterinary visit.
