Husbandry behaviors are ones that make day to day care easier. These can include a variety of foundation behaviors such as stationing, shifting, recall, crate training, and more. Utilizing certain husbandry behaviors as a foundation can also facilitate training for voluntary cooperation in medical care. This can include behaviors such as injection training, blood sampling, hoof/foot care, and more. This presentation examines some of the more common behaviors utilized to support day to day care and health care in a wide variety of species in managed care. Learn more about how to easily incorporate husbandry and medical behaviors into your routine to facilitate efficient, effective animal care while supporting optimal animal welfare. Whether you are just getting started or are experienced and looking for new ideas, this presentation will inspire you with numerous video examples.
