Training for Nasal Swabs
This badge signifies completion of the course Training for Nasal and Oral Swabs. There have been a number of voluntary diagnostic behaviors that have become standard training goals for animals in managed care. Some of these include training animals to stand on scales, hold position for hand injections, present hooves for trimming, and blood collection among others. With the introduction of the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV2, it is time to consider adding voluntary nasal swabs as another behavior to practice regularly especially with those species most vulnerable to the virus. This course provides a detailed shaping plan, tools to facilitate the process and numerous video examples.
