Meet Ash! This handsome boy is a new patient of Bigger Road.
His previous experiences at other vets haven’t been so great. His owner talked about how nervous he gets and how he’s always been muzzled. He said these vet visits are the only situations Ash is like this, and he hated taking him to other clinics, and was looking for a better experience for both of them.
Today he met Dr. Blakelock, who sat on the floor while she gave him lots of delicious treats. Ash also loves tennis balls, and we had them at the ready!
We did Ash’s entire exam, drew blood, and gave him his vaccines – all on the floor- all with no muzzle. Ash was happy and relaxed and his owner was thrilled!
