Pt lived in a house with a neutered male dog but they were not allowed to be free in the house at the same time (one was always crated). Subjective: Alert, crouched low at the back of the kennel; Observed Behavior – Once the transfer door was shut, pt trembled and crouched low to the ground, but came forward towards the door. She was leashed, and then she came towards the front willingly, with tail wagging between her legs. She walked well on the leash to the exam room and was easily muzzled. I touched her on the head and she immediately lifted her lips to show her front teeth and growled, and she urinated. She turned and snapped as I examined her. She had a very tense body and was crouched throughout the exam. MC and HWT were not attempted due to pt stress.
