Medical and husbandry care is important for the health and well-being of your pets. However, the very treatments we need to perform can be stress inducing for the pet. Not only can it sometimes be challenging for veterinary professionals to perform routine procedures while minimizing stress for pets, but it can be particularly challenging for pet owners or fosters at home to perform needed care.

One simple foundation skill to help pets and fosters be more successful with medical and husbandry care is to create a Treatment Station for the pet. To find out more about what a treatment station is and how to best utilize to help you care for your foster pet watch this short video on conditioning your foster pet to a treatment station.
