Visits to the vet can be stressful for both pets and pet owners alike. One way to ensure a trauma-free visit to the vet is to train your pet to get used to being in a moving vehicle while inside his crate. Crate training should be introduced early on, after which you can help get your pet get used to being in a car. Once he feels confident and comfortable riding in the car, you can ask the staff of the vet clinic if it’s okay for your pet to make social visits so he can interact with them and be more familiar with the place.
Your car should also be a healthy and safe place for your pet to be in. The temperature should be just enough and air should not be blowing directly toward your pet. Keep the windows up to avoid any accidents. It is recommended that even small dogs should be placed inside a carrier; there have been cases when small dogs get under the gas pedal and cause accidents.
When visiting the Animal Care vet clinic, it is a good idea to go directly to the clinic and immediately home afterward. If you are taking several dogs, make sure that each one is placed in their own carrier. Anxiety can easily trigger fights and squabbles among pets.
