Breintje goes into total nope-nope-NOPE!-modus:

In the waiting room: shaking, thumping and making a racket in his travel carrier. I usually take him out and put him in my vest to calm him down. Once the vet opened the door and said: “Come in Breintje, I already heard you were there”.
In the treatment room: quiet and trying desperately to climb back onto me or Bas. It’s heartbreaking really. He’s not bitey towards the vet but he won’t be examined. We have to hold him down with 2 people for even a simple exam.
After the treatment: still very upset and beathing quickly, can only be calmed by tucking him into my vest tightly. The rest of the day he’s mopey and often gives us “the butt”. Raisins are the only thing to improve his mood a little.
