Vet Preparation

Do you have a pet who is scared of nail trims?  Does the thought of taking your pet to the vet cause you to break out in a sweat?  Instead of struggling with your pets, teach them to willingly participate in their own care! .  

 

We have two classes to help - one to help dogs that aren’t afraid yet learn about the vet and handling and one specifically for dogs who are already nervous about vet visits and handling.

 

Each class works on skills like sitting still for exams, vaccines, blood draws, and injections. We will systematically desensitize and counter-condition your dog to all aspects of handing. We will also help you to be the best advocate for your dog in these situations - knowing when to call it quits and regroup to make the experience easier on everyone.

Vet Skills 102: A Pound of Cure 

DESCRIPTION: This class is tailored specifically towards dogs who have medium to high levels of anxiety during vet visits. This class is designed to be free-form and tailored to each individual dog and their specific issues at vet clinics – whether it be basic restraint, injections, blood draws, etc. We will implement systematic desensitization and counter-conditioning to provide some form of a cure to the fear, stress,  and anxiety underlying your dog’s response to the various aspects of a vet exam.


For some dogs, this class may initially focus on administering injections so that proper sedation protocols can be safely followed to minimize stress to dogs, owners, and vet staff as we work on teaching your dog the skills needed to complete a vet exam.

 

Note: It is highly recommended that dogs with severe fear, stress, and anxiety during vet visits follow an appropriate sedation protocol should a vet exam be needed while undertaking this course to prevent regression.

DESCRIPTION: This class is designed to help prevent or minimize fear, anxiety, and stress during vet visits for dogs. Over the 5 weeks of this class, we will teach you how to best prepare your dog for vet exams by slowly introducing them to the various aspects of a wellness exam. We will also teach you how to be the best advocate for your dog at the vet to prevent any escalation of problems.
Note: This class is tailored specifically for dogs that do not currently have any major problems during vet exams – especially young dogs or dogs that may be timid, but can get through the exams with minimal issues. If your dog has had overtly n
