WVC 91st Annual Conference
Specialty Veterinary Technician Session: A veterinary patient’s perioperative experience is based on so much more than the surgeon’s skill. Veterinary technicians play a vital role in the care of perioperative patients and educating pet owners. Strategies for supporting patient comfort and emotional wellbeing while assuring successful surgical outcomes will be discussed, such as the importance of fear-free handling techniques, perioperative analgesia, nutrition tactics, and surgical checklists. Join this lecture for practical ideas that elevate the perioperative experience by nurturing the human-animal bond and exceeding client expectations.
