Does going to the vet scare you and your pet?

Going to the vet is unfortunately one of the trips that causes both dogs and cats to be afraid.  Whether or not they have had a bad experience in the past, you may have a dog that refuses to take a step towards the front door or a cat that yowls in their carrier while in the waiting room.  Then, when in the exam room, your pet might be terrified and will barely move, or could act aggressive, a behaviour you may never see normally.
