Watch for dogs' nonverbal cues in the veterinary clinic


Body language lets you get an early indicator of where the dog is, emotionally, says behaviorist Dr. John Ciribassi.

An upset patient is one that is likely to cause trouble in the exam room, says CVC educator John Ciribassi, DVM, DACVB.

"If you're not paying attention to these subtle physical clues, the first time you're aware that the dog is having an issue is when it's snapping at you," he says.
