</4 out 5 veterinarians were scared to handle my shiba (even though they don't show any teeth or growl) and requested they'r put on muzzle. One of them even refused to touch Saku. blockquote>Basically the above is what happened with my Quakey when I took him to Dr. Sani at Dupont Animal Center here in Washington, DC. She would not touch him if he was not muzzled even though he was no doing anything. They had leave the room and they muzzled him. They completely traumatized my little boy which led to anxiety issues that thank goodness we worked through with behaviorist vet Dr. Kathy Meyer and much patience and training on my part along with giving him medication. Had I known then what I know now I would not have allowed them to slap a muzzle on him. I would have told them where to get off.Now for the fabulous news---I adore Dr. Cabaniss who is the owner of Collins Animal Hospital in Georgetown. She and her vet tech Reggie are wonderful with my Quakey. We went for a third vet visit on Friday and they had to draw blood and Quakey was fine. He did do a Shiba scream but I was in the room talking to him and petting him while Dr. Cabaniss drew the blood quickly and Reggie held Quakey. All went well. Dr. Cabaniss and Reggie gave my Quakey treats and much love both before and after the blood draw and all was well. We will be going back in two months for a fun visit with Dr. Cabaniss and Reggie. I am so very grateful to have found such an amazing vet.
