The merging of animal training and veterinary medicine is inevitable. With both veterinary professionals and animal trainers seeking ways to provide optimum care for parrots it is the perfect match.
Training with positive reinforcement offers ways to teach parrots to cooperate in their own medical care. This can go a long way in reducing stress as well as making sure veterinary procedures are successfully administered. In addition many clients visiting veterinary professionals are seeking help with behavior problems. This is another area where positive reinforcement training can help tremendously.
