Fearless Vet Visits in Atlanta, GA
We want to make your pet’s visits as pleasant as possible. So here are some ways we strive for fearless vet visits.
Fearless Vet Visits
Time to Acclimate
Once you and your pet have arrived, we will get you into an examination room as soon as possible. From there, we will give you some time alone in the room with your pet. This time will allow your pet to acclimate to its new surroundings. After that, your pet can explore on its terms, and then the exam room won’t be as strange and scary when it is time for your pet’s appointment.
Calm Exam Room
We must keep our exam rooms as calm as possible. So, we take measures to do so. Certain hormones remind your pet of pleasant times, connecting it with the room. The room is a comfortable temperature set up to keep your pet comfortable. If the space is calm, it helps them remain steady throughout the experience.
Treats are an essential part of fearless vet visits. We encourage you to include treats in the preparation process at home. Then, when our veterinarian comes into the exam room, they will also have treats. Things like spray cheese and bacon strips make the exam more fun for your pet, who gets special treats in a new place!
Include the Owner
As a pet owner, your role begins before the appointment, getting your pet comfortable with its carrier and prepared for the visit. Our veterinarian will have the owner play with the animal during the exam. This reassurance will support it if it is nervous, which will usually help soothe its fears. By keeping the owner involved, the pet will always have someone familiar and comforting by its side.
