Whether you are taking your dog to the animal emergency hospital, or even just for a routine grooming, they may start to shake and whine when you take them towards the building. Some dogs ever get nauseous and vomit from severe anxiety when you take them new places, so it is crucial that you pay careful attention to the warning signs your dog gives of anxiety. In this video, we will look at what truly makes a dog anxious and what you can do to help them while still going about their regular check-ups and groomings.
First of all, you should expose your puppy to the vet very young. Ask to place them on the scale yourself, to show them that there is nothing to be afraid of. Give them tons of treats and show them that the vet is fun! If you have an older dog, wait for the vet and play with your dog! Make the vet’s office fun, and shower them with love and praise. If you show them that the vet isn’t a scary place, they are much less likely to develop anticipatory anxiety.
