THE KITTEN MANUAL
(Available in print-only and/or digital versions)
To provide the best, up-to-date advice to your clients, tailored for your vet clinic or training business, you need ‘The Kitten Manual’ by Dr Jen Nesbitt-Hawes BVSc MVSt MANZCVS (Veterinary Behaviour).
This 35-page manual covers everything a new kitten owner needs to know including:
Reading kitten body language (and being able to detect early signs of anxiety or discomfort)
Socialisation (how this should be approached – not just ‘exposure’ but monitoring closely to ensure positive experiences)
Appropriate training methods (what is positive reinforcement, why we use it, and how to teach kittens)
Troubleshooting (common kitten behaviour problems and what to do about them)
It also discusses health care, carrier training, handling, how to use a reward marker, and setting kittens up for success.
Best of all, it is customised to your business. It will have your logo and business name, on the front page and header. It will have your contact information inside. If you happen to stock any of the products mentioned, then your kitten manual can direct clients to your business. If you have a particular protocol for what happens on the day of desexing, or want to add in any other details, The Kitten Manual will be edited to reflect that, and make it yours.
The Kitten Manual is AUD$275 for the print-only version and $450 for the extended license (you receive both versions, for print and digital distribution). The document is provided to your business as a pdf file.
STANDARD LICENSE (PRINT ONLY): You will be given ongoing copyright permission to distribute printed versions of the entire manual to your clients, or print off individual pages to use as behaviour handouts. The digital document is not for distribution, nor may any version be made available for resale.
EXTENDED LICENSE: If you'd like to distribute the Kitten Manual digitally to your clients - this option is now available with the Extended License version!
