Default Those with "no-touchie" dogs...

how do you handle going to the vet?

Frodo and I have discovered the amazingness that is a basket muzzle and squeeze cheese thanks to our behaviorist and she was able to do a small exam without him growling. I'm pretty comfortable with this being the norm for us from here on out.

Normally Frodo is fine until the vet tries to touch him and then it's growling and trying to spin around to get at said vet. (ETA: At this juncture I am absolutely holding his head, I don't just let my reactive dog loose while a vet tries to touch him, lol)
My current (amazing) vet just sedates the crap out of him if she needs to get near the pointy end

So yeah, just wondering how those of you with dogs that don't normally handle being manipulated by strangers deal with going to the vet.
