We promote stress-free veterinary care in Vancouver WA.
At Claus Paws Veterinary Care in Vancouver WA we are committed to giving you and your pet a stress-free visit to the veterinarian. We do everything we can to help both pet and owner feel calm and relaxed during the appointment. Here are some things we can do together to create successful visits to see your Claus Paws veterinarian.
Prepare for a calm trip to the veterinary clinic. If you stay calm yourself, your pet will feel reassured about the outing, and may be able to relax. It’s best if cats and dogs can be comfortable in their carriers, and that the trips to the veterinarian are not the only time they are in their carriers.
We work to create a sense of calm in our exam rooms. We take our time getting to know your pet, using treats when appropriate, letting your pet smell us and our instruments before we do anything. Many cats like having a towel or something to “hide” under, and a nonslip surface for the exam.
We focus not only on your pet’s physical well-being, but also on their emotional well-being. We begin the visit with an understanding of your pet’s state, and practice techniques to ensure a low-stress experience. When you have a timid or nervous pet, we work together to make their visit feel as comfortable and safe as possible.
