Stress-Free Pet Visits in Nashua
Let’s face it; a veterinary hospital usually isn’t a pet’s favorite place to be. With the unfamiliar sights, sounds, and smells, it can cause various levels of stress, which can then cause stress for their owners. Perhaps this is something you know all too well. Perhaps you’ve avoided bringing your companion to the vet because of it. Here at All Pets Veterinary Hospital, we don’t want anything to get in the way of your pet receiving the veterinary care he needs. That’s why we do everything we can to help pets enjoy stress-free visits in our Nashua facility.
What Is a Stress-Free Animal Hospital?
As a stress-free pet hospital, we are staffed with specially trained doctors and technicians who take extra measures to make our patients more comfortable. Some of the techniques you can expect to see in use include:
- Avoiding any quick or sudden movements
- Gentle handling with minimal restraint
- Handling one pet at a time
- Explaining what we’re going to do before we do it
- Speaking to every pet to ensure them that they’ll be safe*
*Based on a groundbreaking study featured in the Washington Post, dogs and cats are more intelligent than many people realize, when it comes to their understanding of spoken words. This study, which was performed by scientists in Hungary, involved scanning the brain activity of dogs after certain words were spoken aloud. The brain activity indicated that dogs can comprehend what their owners are saying, in addition to just basic short-phrase commands. Dr. Tamás Faragó, one of the doctors who was involved with the study, concluded that cats and other domestic animals can also understand certain words and tones.
So although it may be a little unusual, we strongly believe that speaking to our patients in a calm manner can help them have a more peaceful, stress-free veterinary experience. Give us a call at 603-882-0494 to schedule your pet’s stress-free visit in Nashua at All Pets Veterinary Hospital.
