Creating a “low stress” (sometimes called “fear-free”) environment and how to handle animals in a less stressful manner benefits patients, staff and the veterinary hospital alike. Minimising patient stress is often overlooked, as many veterinary practitioners believe that creating a low stress environment is too hard and/or too time consuming. According to an article published in this journal, this need not be the case. “With some simple approaches, minimising patient, and hence staff, stress is achievable in all veterinary practices,” says the author of the article, Dr Janice Lloyd, Senior Lecturer of Veterinary Behaviour and Welfare at James Cook University, Australia. The article outlines practical steps for minimising patient stress and provides useful resources for helping practitioners achieve this goal. (The cover image is from Dr. Richard Squires.)
