Mods, if I'm in the incorrect forum, I apologize.
Let me start off by saying WHAT A WEEK.
My mom, this past Saturday, broke her right femur. And because of her age and previous health status it was agreed upon to transfer her to a Rehab/nursing home for therapy for up to 4 to 8 weeks. I just want to say that the people who work there are an amazing group of folks. That being said, I had ask if pets are welcome to visit, and they said most definately, as long as they are on a leash and have gone potty before hand. Also, I questioned if they have a restricted ban on certain breeds, and thank God they do not (did I mention how awesome these folks are
). So, here is my concern....
My Kane is an awesome gentlemen
I don't mean to brag, but he is a lover. Especially to elderly and kids. My concern is that in the building itself, they have a dementia ward in which I have to pass, and of course have to go through the rest of the rehab ward to get to my moms room. Should I purchase a muzzle for a "prevenative measure"? Just have it on until we get to the room? Of course, I will try to make this a positive experience for Kane, make it fun, not punishment. But, then again, I don't want all these kind folk to see me come in with a GS with a muzzle on. And get them worked up.
Ug, I don't know what to do. My mom wants to see him so bad. The counselors and therapists are encouraging me to bring him because "studies show that healing excellerates when pets are around". Should I get a muzzle, or shouldn't I?
