Val, my 3 month old Aussie went ballistic at the vet's office today. The vet was trying to trim his nails and he screamed bloody murder and it took two vet techs to hold him down to get his nails trimmed. The vet didn't hurt him; he just didn't want to have his nails trimmed. I wonder how I'll ever get to trim his nails? The vet said to touch is paws frequently to get him used to having his paws touched and desensitzed.
He also recommended that I use Natures Miracle on the carpeting where he continues to try to pee on it.
