Low stress veterinary visits Owner Factsheet

It is extremely common for dogs to find going to the veterinary practice stressful - they may show signs of distress as they approach the surgery and their behaviour may change as they go into the waiting and examination rooms. Pets who quietly withdraw may be not recognised as being terrified so it is important to recognise the signs of stress and learn how to make the visit to the vets as enjoyable as possible.
