Don't pick him up like you would a cat - under the arms and lift.

Always make sure his front and back legs are supported in your arms - you don't want him dangling as this may cause an injury.

He could walk into the clinic on a short lead, just do not allow him to meet other dogs as you don't know their illness. And when waiting at the clinic, again keep him on a short lead in between your feet.
