Just like us, our pets require routine check ups and care for their physical health and hygiene. This is most commonly a combination of at home care as well as veterinary, and potentially groomer, care. According to current research, as much as 78% of dogs are fearful at the veterinary office, and likely an even higher percentage of cats! Considering our pets benefit from routine check ups with their vet for their physical health, that sure is a lot of stressed pets and parents.
The Clever Critters Team can help reduce fear, anxiety, and stress for your pet at the vet and groomer by working with you and your veterinarian and grooming office to build a behavior care plan to treat the whole pet; mind and body. Cooperative Care can be addressed in Behavior Modification services.
Creating a calm and positive association with veterinary and grooming care is the healthier and safer choice for all involved. Click below to learn more!
