Our chocolate lab can not hold still at the vet. He doesn’t mind the shots but he really wants to explore the smells and play with everyone that comes in the room.
During our most recent visit, they showed us a great trick for distracting him and holding him still. They smeared peanut butter on the “wall”, a folded down table. He happily licked up all the peanut butter, ignoring both the shots and the other animal smells.
