Keep your pet calm during travel with soothing music, a familiar blanket, and a well-ventilated carrier.
Your pet can sense your emotions. Stay calm and composed to reassure your furry friend during the vet visit.
After a successful vet visit, reward your pet with their favorite treat and plenty of praise for their good behavior.
