As well as training, another thing that you can do to make my job easier is to handle your pet and get it comfortable with this. A veterinary visit can be stressful, so the better prepared your pet is, the better the visit will go, especially if they are ever ill. Play with your pet’s mouth, ears, feet, belly and reward them for allowing this to take place. This makes a physical exam much easier to perform and if you ever need to medicate your pet, you will be glad that you ensured that your pet is comfortable with handling.
