Dreamy Vet Grabs Guitar, Soothes Nervous Golden Retriever Before Surgery.

If you are a pet owner, chances are you know full well the implications of a trip to the vet. It all starts out like a fun car ride… but the moment your pet recognizes the parking lot, the mood changes in a hurry.


Some pets are more susceptible to checkup trepidation than others, but Dr. Ross has found the perfect prescription for when things get hairy in the exam room. “Sometimes your patient just needs you to go the extra mile to make them feel comfortable when they’re here for the day to have surgery,” the hospital posted. “Dr. Ross has mastered the technique and sweet Ruby was so thankful for that.”

Dr. Ross has a simple tool to calm his -in this case canine- charge, Ruby. The young veterinarian grabs his six string and strums a tune that takes the mood in the room down to a calm, relaxed level.


The Fox Hollow Animal Hospital in Lakewood, Colorado posted a video to their Facebook page of Dr. Ross crooning Elvis’s hit ballad ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love‘ to what was moments before a very nervous golden retriever. The little fur child is chillin’ like a villain and completely trusting of the big hearted vet. Check out the moment in the video below!
