How do you feel when you take your pets to the vet?

I am never able to go to the vet with my dog so I always send someone else. I seem to get too emotional. My dog will be going to the vet today because she broke her nail. I'm not sure exactly what they will do but I am scared. Is it normal to feel this way? How do you feel when you take your pets to the vet? :c

don't worry, most folks are apprehensive when they take their pet to the vet....if your dog were really sick, it would be normal to be emotional...but for a broken nail (they can take care of that and they do heal) you should just take him/her, let them do their job and it will be fine. most of us are nervous when we go because like ourselves going to the doctor, we are afraid they might find something else wrong...even when you or your pet go in for a regular check-up...it just our nature!

Hi. honey. I always end up crying, for some reason. I just get so emotional. I mean they're my children and I can't stand to see them sick. My vet teases me about always having to bring out the Kleenex box for me, and tells me that I'm usually a lot worse off than they are. >:-0

I am usually glad to be getting expert advice and care. I think you're overreacting especially since it is just a nail.

Do you trust your vet? Do you think he/she will do what is best for your dog? If so there is no reason to be nervous. And being nervous does nothing but upset your dog. It will follow your lead on how to feel. My dogs love going to the vet because I make it a positive experience for them. The only time I get nervous is when I have to leave them because they are too sick to bring home. I had a dog spend 9 days in ICU, I was down there every day except one because they said it would be best I didn't go so he would stay calm after surgery.

My cat is very good to me and I am responsible for his care. I consider my role similar to a mother. He trusts me to do what is best for him and I am there to support him, come what may.

What if you had a friend to join you and your pet?
