Steps to help pet have stress-free veterinary visit

Dr. Cynthia Maro

You’ve likely been part of this routine at veterinary hospitals before. You head to your pet’s vet appointment, only to have to drag your dog by the leash or have your cat run away as soon as you pull out a pet carrier and when you finally catch your pet, she scratches you as you cram her into the carrier.
