Dog Tips!

Many dogs are fearful of unfamiliar things, just like people! Acclimating dogs to handling can improve their visit at the vet. This is especially important in young puppies. Adult dogs take a lot more slow, patient introduction to new things. Improve your pet’s vet experience by regularly handling their mouth, paws, & ears. Normalize handling these areas to reduce stress during physical exams.
