Visits to a veterinarian are always stressful for both the owner and pet. At American Canyon Veterinary Hospital, we try to make the whole experience pleasant and as less stressful as possible. Preparation for the visit should start a few days prior to the actual day it is scheduled. Following are some helpful tips proposed by Dr. Singh and staff to make your visit as smooth as possible. Sometimes with pet’s that have severe anxiety, sending home a mild sedation medication is the best way to make sure your pet has a comfortable visit. We do need to see your pet within the last 12 months in order to dispense any medication however once the examination is complete, if the Doctor has prescribed sedatives for your pet then we can schedule another appointment for you to come back with your pet after giving the medication to complete any treatments or services that are needed. You can also keep this medication on hand for future visits.
Here are some tips to help your pet have the best experience possible.
