Dog is afraid of the vet - dog fears vet - Answered by Dr. Slome
I own a black lab/chow mix. I recently moved and took Dakota to a new vet.
dakota has had some very bad experiences at the vet and when Dakota would not let the vet muzzle him after 1/2 hour of tormenting Dakota, the vet threw his hands up in the air and told me to get a new vet and that he wouldn't have the dog around the place. My feelings were so hurt and my dog still doesn't have his shots. This dog is great with people and other dogs and now his experieinces at the vet have been worse than ever. Can anyone help me figure out a way to take the fear out of Dakota when going to the vet.
