When I took Rio back the next day he had me keep him in my car to avoid spreading the germs. As soon as Rio saw him coming up to the car he was instantly growling. I got in the back with him and held him when he got the shot. He is NEVER like this.
He was doing so well and eating so the vet ended his treatments.
I've had him back to the same clinic twice now. The first time, we got the other vet, who is married to the one who treated Rio for Parvo. Rio loved her! Was giving her kisses and everything.
The next time we had the original vet. As soon as Rio saw him and heard his voice he started growling at him. Now, I know what some of you guys may be thinking, but he is not an aggressive dog at all. My two and a half year old niece rides him and jumps on him. He only barks when people knock on the door, but not when we open it. (except for this one creepy guy who tried selling us a Kirby sweeper. Rio did not like him in our house.)
I held Rio's head as the vet examined him. I asked the vet techs to not touch him unless necessary because I didn't want him more upset. After we got done with the exam he let the receptionist pet him and love on him.
Now, does Rio remember the 'pain' the vet but him through, or are the some people that dogs just don't 'trust'?
