Congratulations to Dr. Anselmo for receiving her Low Stress Handling-Silver Certification!

What does low stress handling certification mean? Stress is common in companion animals, especially in the hospital setting.   Reducing this stress is important for the animal’s mental and physical well-being.  Stress reduction can minimize the need for sedation and create a more pleasant hospital experience.  Doctors certified in low stress handling can provide specific techniques and employ behavior modification to lower the stress level of their patients both in the clinic and at home.  They have completed additional continuing education classes to learn how to shape a positive emotional response by modifying the environment, their handling skills/techniques, and/or utilizing medications as needed.
