Low Stress Handling in Cats


As we thanksfully move towards ‘fear free practice’, it is essential that all staff are aware of the changes that can be made to make life in practice easier and less stressful for cats.


This interactive course will focus on the use of feline-friendly handling techniques and will discuss strategies that can be tailored to the individual cat and situation, plus general changes to the environment to help most feline patients adapt better in the clinic.

We will also explore the advice to be given to prepare cats and owners in advance of visits; as well as how to reintegrate cats into the home following a hospital stay.


By the end of this module, successful candidates will be able to:

  • Understand the reasoning behind the importance of low stress handling of cats
  • Know and apply principles of low stress cat handling, pre-emptive measures and trouble shooting within the practice
  • Be able to advise clients on helpful techniques to reduce cat stress before, during and after travel to the practice
