  TTouch & Vets  Article:
  A PEACEFUL OPTION
Article By: Sandra Vahsholtz DVM        Publish Date: 1997-08-10

Approximately a year ago, TTEAM Practitioner Jodi Frediani came to the Camden Pet Hospital in San Jose and gave us a day’s worth of TTouch instruction. At the end of the day, she asked us how we felt about TTouch. TTouch at the veterinary clinic gives the staff an easy, proactive, peaceful option for dealing with difficult and potentially difficult situations. It can keep a pet that is on the verge of being upset and out of control from going over the edge and dragging me and my staff into that frustrating ravine. It helps us to win the bad dog/ bad cat battle psychologically and physically. When you accomplish a medical event peacefully, quietly and pleasantly, it is much more rewarding than accomplishments accompanied by scratches, bites, sweat, poop and tears.

TTouch is not a replacement for anesthesia or chemical restraint, but it is a wonderful tool for animals that don’t understand that we just need to do this little, easy nail trim/wrap change/injection/exam and it will be over. And it makes the people feel good when we don’t have to engage in a small war.
