Smile Your dog and the vet

How your dog reacts to the vet? Most dogs I see are afraid of vets.

Mine owever absolutly love to go to the vet LOL! He is absolutly not afaraid of vet and he is curious about it. Vets and technicians just love him so much because he is friendly with them and wants to play. They told me numerous time how adorable he is and how they love to have calm dogs like him, especially big breeds

How is your dog at the vet?

Stark loves the vets office. Tones of treats, dogs and cats to meet and pets from everyone.

Lucy's very good at the vet. I bring along a bag of carrots and she's a very happy camper.

She had pneumonia at a very young age so i was in and out of there a lot when i first got her so everyone knew her there and she got used to it. She's pretty good about it. She lets them check whatever they want to check without any kid of fuss.

Dallas just went to the vet yesterday. She does well until they put her on the scale and then it starts to lift. Then she gets a little nervous and there is some panting. However, the second they are done and she is back on the floor she completely fine and will do tricks for the staff and collect her treats.
Willow has only been the vet for puppy shots and a few random visits for a weight check but it has always been positive and she enjoys the attention.

I had to go with unsure, a little afraid. But I can say all 3 are well behaved in the office.
Apache 8yrs is a chicken, he goes to the ophthalmologist at least 1x a year now and they were amazed how good he was even the 1st extensive exam.
Kiya 6ys became afraid after her seizures, I found out they put a muzzle on her and kept her in the cage all day. Ever since then she is afraid.
Lakota 7 months is a chicken.

Stosh is especially popular at the vet's office- he loves to go and acts like a big fluffy clown. They're always impressed with how well behaved he is and how much he loves going with whoever has him by the lead- no separation anxiety for him! He's 7 mos and sometimes pees on the vet's foot when she's examining him, she calls him The Lemon- a squirt every time she squeezes.

J has a bad temperament to start with... Our vet trip includes me and someone else he trusts restraining him and covering his eyes while he's muzzled, the vet sneaking in and doing her thing, and leaving quickly...

Sunny has only been to the vet once (we just got her) but the entire trip there, she howled like a monkey. At which point we almost renamed her to Monkey Dog. While there she was nervous but was soaking everything in and didn't have a problem being poked or prodded. We stupidly then thought, lets take her to the pet store and get a collar that fits her. She howled all the way there too. We thought all would be good on the way home because she was asleep in the cart, nope - woke up and howled some more.
