Fearful and anxious pets require a gentle approach by you and your staff to minimize and hopefully reduce the pet's fear and prevent escalation. Test yourself against the advice of two skilled veterinarians, and see if you and your team members are doing all you can to increase safety for veterinary personnel and owners and enhance dogs’ emotional well being in your exam room.

This quiz is adapted from an article by Dr. Gary Landsberg, Dipl. ACVB, Dipl. ECVBM-CA and Dr. Theresa DePorter.

Here's the first question:

1) Signs of anxiety in a dog may include:

A. Licking, yawning, and drooling
B. Looking away
C. Exposing the belly
D. Whining or barking
E. All of the above
