Low-Stress Handling

We take steps to make your pet’s visit to Rohrig Animal Hospital low-stress and as pleasant as possible. We know that sometimes the experience at a veterinary clinic can be difficult both for pets and owners. That is why we work to create a positive environment. We do this by using food — all animals are programmed to have a positive response to food. We can offer your pet a safe, healthy treat just before an injection, an otoscopic exam or other unpleasant procedure.

In addition, we adjust lighting, cover exam tables with mats, use comfortable bedding, and work to reduce loud and/or unexpected noise in the clinic. And we avoid and discourage the use of punishment or force with pets.
