…dogs that exhibit warning signs of their stress. Such signs can be very, very subtle.
Those veterinary professionals with years of experience will recognize such signals and respond appropriately to the patient. Some pet parents will not recognize these signs and sometimes are reluctant to accept that their pet needs special handling.
Trust your veterinary professional. Your dog may be communicating quite clearly in dog language. If the communication is not respected, the situation could escalate resulting in a more fearful dog or an injured person.
