HELP! MY GREYHOUND IS AFRAID OF GOING TO THE VET!
Vet visits can be stressful for the beings on both ends of the leash! If we are upset or concerned about having to pass our Greyhound off to vet staff at the curb, our dogs may feed on that anxiety. Our dogs are incredibly responsive to us, often feeding off our emotions. According to Companion Animal Psychology, 30% of dogs are highly stressed while sitting in the waiting room at the vet's office. And why wouldn't they be? Everything is new and they are unsure of what is going on. So, whether your vet’s office is fully open or on COVID restrictions, try to remain calm and confident. Not only will this help your dog to have a better vet experience, but it will also help the visits to be less stressful for both of you. The following tips will help prepare you and your dog for your next trip to the vet’s office.
