Veterinary visits - minimizing stress

It is extremely common for dogs to find going to the veterinary practice stressful - they may show signs of distress as they approach the surgery and their behavior may change as they go into the waiting and examination rooms. Pets who quietly withdraw may be not recognized as being terrified so it is important to recognize the signs of stress and learn how to make the visit to the veterinary practice as enjoyable as possible.
