yeah, i'm wondering if a soft muzzle, or basket muzzle would be better for these situations? i know they use the soft ones, but i assume that is because they are easier to put on quickly, if it were already on, tho, do you think the basket type would be better?

What a great thread!
So much good advice here!


As far as additional advice goes...

If your dog is highly reactive and/or agressive to other animals let the staff know ahead of time. That way they will be able to either bring you and your dog in through the back or take you immediately to an exam room.

I know this thread is directed more toward dogs, but for cat and other small animal owners, make sure to bring your pets in a crate/pet carrier. It protects you and your pet from injury as well as prevents then from escaping.
I know this is common sense, but I have seen several cat owners get scratched and bitten when their cat was frightened by a dog at my vet's office!

common sense, IMO is actually a rare thing ... i've seen lots of people with their cats, just wrapped in a towel or something, i don't think they understand how frightened they can get in these situations... even a smaller dog might benefit from being in a carrier at the vet, it might help them to feel safe in such a scary environment.

great advice kmes

Only thing that I am sure is listed but I want to reiterate (or mention) is that when anything happens, vomiting, diarrhea, strange behavior, write it down even if its the first time it has happened, include date and time and any other details like was the vomit food or bile (of course after a few incidents if its food and happens after eating and then playing and nothing else has happened afterwards you stop having to write these down ) was the diarrhea formed at all, like pudding, liquid, projectile/watery, etc. Also think of ANYTHING that happened around the same time (like I listed with eating then playing soon after, or if the dog was outside and came in then got sick) again I think its best to stress that some situations you will realize are not urgent and will know how to handle them or recognize them later on.

Hope that made sense lol I find it helped us a lot in past situation to let our vet know where the dog was, what happened before the situation, if this was the first time or its happened before, etc. We easily and quickly diagnosed Harvick with food allergies and didn't have to spend lots of money running tests because we had so many details

Great thread with some really useful advice. I'd also add that, for new dog owners, check out your local vets before you decide which one to register with. It's important that you have confidence in them - and probably a good idea to find this out before you're facing him/her with a sick dog.

I had a free consultation with a couple of vets before I got my puppy and it enabled me to select one I felt happy with. Ironically I ended up changing mine after a couple of months because, after I got my puppy, I decided to feed him a raw food diet which my vet was totally opposed to. Had I known I was going to do this before I got him, I wouldn't have registered with my first vet.

another great tip sarah w! figuring out things like where they are, what their hours are (mine is open on saturdays, and has an on-call vet, so not e-vet for my guys) are good things to do. as well as how many doctors work out of the same office, as well as if they can see ALL of your pets as opposed to just some of them (rabbits for example are considered "exotic" animals, not all offices will take them)
