My poor dog thinks it's a treat to get to go to the vet. The ladies there are so sweet and give him so much attention. It also doesn't hurt that they occasionally give him treats.
I like going there because they don't mind taking the time to explain things to you. How to give medicine, why you should chose a certain brand.
And they are gentle and caring. When I adopted Shadow he was 2 yrs old and fully grown. He is a Rottweiler, Lab mix. Very intimidating to look at, but a sweetheart. The first vet I took him to wouldn't examine him without a muzzle, never mind he was laying on his back getting a tummy rub from the vet tech. So I asked around and found Mint Hill Animal Clinic. And Shadow and I are very happy!
