Help Your Pet Stress Less
Seeing the vet can be terrifying for pets. Dr. Kersti Seksel, a veterinarian surgeon and animal behavior expert from Australia, recently shared ways to relieve their anxiety, or even prevent it:
- Help your pet be mentally prepared
Familiarize your pet from an early age with how they’ll be handled when they’re at the vet, such as giving a pill and touching their toes, ears and nose. This helps reassure them that the whole experience of coming to the vet can be fun.
- Make sure your pet gets enough sleep
Dogs, for example, need as many as 16 hours of sleep every day. Ensuring pets are well rested can help reduce anxiety.
- Lots of treats
Make the experience positive throughout by rewarding your pet with treats starting when it enters the clinic, not just when they leave.
Dr Seksel spoke at an event organized by the Hong Kong Veterinary Association, sponsored by Pets Central and Antinol. We were honored to have Dr.Seksel host a staff training workshop at Pets Central Mong Kok hospital, sharing her valuable experience with the team.
