For many pets, the stress of visiting the vet actually harms their health more than it helps.

Your dog or cat gets anxious before you even leave the house… the whining or meowing, the trembling and panting, the refusing to get in the car or carrier. The vet’s waiting room is a series of frantic escape attempts, and by the time you’ve finally wrestled your pet onto the slippery metal exam table, it’s only just begun. For many pet owners, going to the veterinarian is so painful that they avoid it altogether, putting off essential vaccinations and check-ups until it’s too late.
