The dreaded vet visit: 5 ways to comfort your dog - pets


Uh-oh, it's that time again. The dreaded vet visit, and Barkley will be whimpering all the way. It's days like this when you wish your dog silent English, so you could tell him, "Hey, even despite the fact that scary colonize in white lab coats are sticking needles in you and chip you in weird places, it's going to be okay. I'm here for you, buddy. "

But since you can't offer your dog peace of mind with encouraging words on the day of his Hated Trip to the Vet's Office, you can at least offer him some comfortable comforts. Here are five ways to bring back the love in those anxious doggy eyes and keep that short tail wagging.

1. Take your fella out for an extra long walk. If a scheduled vet visit means you can't agreement him a nice afternoon, at least give him an enjoyable dawn of being out and about in the great outdoors. Fill his doggy mind with happy memories of blue skies, open roads, cool breezes and chipmunk chasing. He'll soon fail to remember all about those frightening yowls he heard from the cat mover at the vet's office!

2. Bring one of his desired toys along. The vet's won't seem just about as scary if your dog has amazing customary to absorb him and put him at ease. Bring along a whiny hotdog, Kong toy or other choice toy of his, that he can play with in the car and as you sit as one in the coming up room. Just don't not remember to bring the toy back home with you again! You wouldn't want some schnauzer at the vet's company receiving his paws on it!

3. If he's going for an overnight stay, don't disregard his blankie. It's so heartrending to see your dog sick, baffled and frightened in one of those cages at the vet's office. You know it's only temporary, but poor Jake doesn't know that! If you'll be leave-taking him overnight, comfort him with amazing comfortable that smells like home. . . his doggie blanket, or a tee-shirt of yours that's been worn already. This way, he'll have feelings of home and the scent of you, to help him feel safe and assured as he drifts off to sleep.

4. Don't not recall the doggy treats! Probability are, your dog is in all probability not used to being about a bunch of unfamiliar dogs. . . and that visit to the vet's bureau is one big pet party that's sure to get him riled up and barking his head off. Bring along a barely bag of doggy snacks, and slip him one every time he obeys your commands. With any luck, he'll be the best behaved dog of the bunch!

5. Abundant him with love and attention. When you come again from your excursion, give him just a half hour more of your full attention. Play tug of war, brawl on the breed room rug, or take a dip as one in the pool. When he's all tuckered out, feed him his feast and tell him what a good and sweet boy he his. Abrasion his belly and at the back his ears, give him some big kisses and hugs, and tell him how much you love him. Cute soon, he'll not recall all about the vet's office! And so will you. . . that is, until you get the bill. ;)
