How to prepare your dog for vet visits

Updated: Feb 2, 2021

Getting your dog used to handling is one of the most important things you can do in order to have a stress free visit to the vet for both yourself and your pet. At Penbode Vets we try our best to avoid forced restraint for procedures as maintaining the emotional health as well as the physical health of our patients is an important part of our values. In order to do this your help is required to get your pet accustomed to vet visits. Different dogs struggle with different procedures, so listed below you will find internet links to recommended videos showing you how to start training your pet to accept (if not enjoy!) certain procedures.
