Archie had to get his nails cut at the vets and he really hates it and gets very anxious
The lovely vet explained that it’s their thing that they use to flee in times of fear and when their feet are held they feel they can’t run and panic…sounds so simple now but at the time I didn’t realise that and makes total sense! And it’s ok!
The vet was kind, patient and went at his pace and they got done
Archie is my third fur baby and they are all different and all worried about different things
We wouldn’t say to “well crack on everyone else gets on with it!” “Don’t be scared! “How silly!” Cause that’s just mean..look at him but we do it to ourselves! That’s pretty mean too!
We all have different things that make us nervous, we are all different don’t compare yourself to others we all have our things that make us feel icky
If for whatever the return to kids back at school makes you nervous, going to work makes you nervous, driving, being on a plane, being in large groups, etc etc it’s ok! It’s natural, it’s normal it’s ok you are not alone.
I see so many clients who feel silly for their feels, don’t my lovely, be kind to you
I love explaining to my clients why we do what we do and them get the same aha! Lightbulb moment that I got at the vets, it’s not rocket science, but it is science , it’s a natural response and once you got the tools you can do it
Proud of pups be proud of you and hope this week is going good
