Vet visit anxiety is real for our dogs. Whether they pick up on the changes in our body language, or they somehow know the way to the vets – dogs have anxiety about a visit to the vet’s office. When dogs walk into the vet’s office they tend to shake a little and their hearing senses become more intune. Every noise they encounter is different, as is every scent they smell.
Vet Visit Anxiety Solutions
We work with vets to help design our in-ear hearing protection. What we have found is that by helping to minimize the noise levels for dogs, their vet visit anxiety was lowered quite dramatically. Dogs who use Calm, by CrittEar during a visit are noticeably more calm and tolerant of being examined by the vet.
How About Responding To The Vet?
Our Calm, by CrittEar dog earplugs do not block out all of the noise – doing so could cause it’s own issues (just like human earplugs). So, dogs are able to wear our products and still interact with the vet – and in a more calm and relaxed manner. This is much healthier for them than an anxious vet visit.
Other Tips for Vet Visit Anxiety
We believe in positive rewards. So give treats to your dog when they are learning how to use our CrittEar dog earplugs – as well as when they are at the vets. Treats help to quash vet visit anxiety.
