The hospital that I work for does not allow cat scruffing. I know that Megan was mostly massage scruffing, but I won't be able to recommend this video for our staff. Is your hospital becoming certified as a cat friendly practice by AAFP?

Dorothy, I must admit that I didn't know too much about the AAFP but I was at the NAVTA conference this past weekend where a GREAT feline doctor gave a fantastic lecture about AAFP and their guidelines. I think DoveLewis does a really good job with our feline restraint, especially for the situations we find ourselves in with the stress and time constraints but we can always do more and get better. I am now looking into some resources to help up move in that direction. Thanks for your timely comment!

FWIW...We look in every ear, every visit with an otoscope. Pick up a lot of otitis we would have missed with a cursory look without the otoscopic exam.
