Taking the Pet Out of Petrified and Pet Care

Dr. Bernadine Cruz  on Pet Life Radio

I won’t pretend to understand what a dog or cat feels when it goes to the veterinarian or groomer but for some pets visions of space aliens conducting medical experiments and water boarding might be close.  As pet care givers we try to coo our furry charges into believing that it is for their own good and to be brave.  But if you have ever broken out in a sweat at the thought of going to the dentist for a root canal, you know that all the cajoling in the world just doesn’t cut it.
