Veterinarians

Below you’ll find a list of veterinarians recommended by Team DINOS in response to the following questions asked on Facebook: “Do you have a trusted veterinarian that goes above and beyond to create a positive experience for your fearful, anxious, or aggressive dog? Are they compassionate about your dog’s needs, rather than judgmental? Are they skilled at handling your dogs using low-stress techniques and/or knowledgeable about behavior modification? ”

These are the vets you shared who have been helpful for your DINOS. Remember that every dog is an individual and there are many types of DINOS. Choosing a vet is a very personal choice. A vet that comes highly recommended by one DINOS family for their particular dog’s issues, may not be a good fit for you and your dog (it’s happened to me).

This list is a great place to start your search. Get to know the staff and find out how they handle dogs of varying temperaments and social skills. Here are some things to look for in a new vet.

If you’d like to recommend your vet please let me know and I’ll update the list: info@notesfromadogwalker.com

Please note that being included in this list is not an endorsement by DINOS™  or this website.

Key to list: When numbers are listed next to a vet – for example (2) – it reflects the number of times they were recommended. If a specific veterinarian, who works in a multi-vet practice, was called out as being good with DINOS, I’ve listed their name under “special shout out.”
