I like my vet too, she and the vet tech are very patient and compassionate.
I'm paranoid about bloat so I wait about an hour to allow them to play after eating, but I've been told 1/2 hour is sufficient.
Ilda was VA (vacuum aggressive
) as a puppy.
I brought the vacuum out, let sit in the room not running, placed delicious treats on the vac. Desensitized her to it while it was quiet and then turned it on but did not push it around, made her sit, gave her lots of yummy treats. So just slowly introduce the vac in stages, keep it positive and redirect your puppy's attention away from it with a toy or treats if he gets too rambunctious with barking at it. Your dog should get used to it. Now when I vacuum (which is often with the German Shedders) when I get to the spot she happens to be laying I tell her 'you gotta move' and she gets up and relocates. Vacuuming is SO boring now.
