10 Secrets To a Low Stress Vet Visit

Just having to go to the vet is bad enough, but if you have an excitable, fearful, or aggressive dog it can become one of the worst situations. Small waiting rooms; several species of animals, many of whom are also stressed, sick, etc; strangers; weird smells; and of course, the vet. Here are some secrets to a calm vet visit.

#1 – Non-Visits

Take your dog to the vet when they are not actually going in to be handled, poked, etc. Instead, have the receptionist give her treats and praise. This is especially good for young puppies so they can start getting a positive association with vets from a young age.
