A question to vet tech/ nurses/ assistants

Would you purchase a book showing the vet care setting for ear cleaning, sq fluids, oral meds, insulin injections etc with handouts for clients and videos to show how to do low stress/ fear free care at home?

If so what price point would you pay?

Would you want a subscription fee for online access that is updated? What monthly fee? Client subscription?

Never underestimate the effects of mental stress in animals.

Changes in your CBC may be due to patient stress – at the clinic, from travel or from home. I learned the effects of stress on the leukogram 40 years ago. I remember Dr. Dorner saying " what is the stress on the animal? Physical? Pain? other outside effects ( environment, interactions with others)? keep this in mind.

This article reminds us to always use low stress veterinary care through handling, environmental control, pain relief and anxiety relief. We cannot remove all stress yet if we take those steps to decrease stress as much as possible then we can rely on the value of our blood work.
