Waiting Room Frenzy!

So you’re off to see the vet, after the pleasant or not so pleasant car ride, you made it!

The reason we ask you to keep your pet on a leash or in a carrier is for their safety and yours. You never know when the dog who doesn’t like other dogs will come out of the room and your happy fun loving dog goes up to say hi! This can be a recipe for disaster.  What if your cat gets loose out of your arms and the dog across the hall thinks it now it’s a game, and catch the squirrel is on.  We do not want to see your cat climb up your face to get away. When you’re in any waiting room you should always have your pet close to you and be able to have some sort of control.

We also ask you to remember not all of our patients like other humans as well.  Just like if we are outside we need to ask if we can pet another animal, ask if their pet like others before you let them meet.

You also don’t know what pets are here. It might be contagious and we don’t know it yet!
