Santos, a veterinarian with a practice in Portugal, is well known for his humorous approach to maintaining the health and happiness of animals.
Santos doesn’t just approach a furry patient who enters his clinic for a vaccine with the dreaded needle. Instead, he transforms the situation into a game and uses rewards like playing and food to promote positive behavior, making the dogs utterly unaware that they have even been given a chance.
Finally, Santos treats his patients with compassion and care, which not only eliminates their dread and anxiety during their first “scary” session but also makes all subsequent visits something they can eagerly anticipate. It’s also what matters most to me since I actually care about dogs’ wellbeing.
