Nervous Dog Waits For Surgery, Then Young Vet Pulls Out Guitar And Instantly Steals Her Heart

A vet at this clinic offers a unique service that definitely will have your pets excited for a visit.

When a dog named Ruby was about to undergo surgery, she was naturally nervous. The golden retriever was about to be spayed and was surrounded by people she had never met before.

Luckily for Ruby, she was a patient at the Fox Hollow Animal Hospital. This clinic performs a special method to calm nervous animals down – a swoon-worthy, one-on-one serenade.


This unique practice is carried out by one of the vets, Dr. Ross Henderson. Seeing how anxious Ruby was getting, he grabbed his guitar and serenaded Ruby with his rendition of Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling In Love”.

Sometimes your patient just needs you to go the extra mile to make them feel comfortable when they're here for the day to have surgery. Dr. Ross has mastered the technique and sweet Ruby was so thankful for that ❤ #FoxHollowVet

Henderson believes that music and individual attention eases the nervousness of animals. Clearly so, Ruby can be seen lounging peacefully while listening to him singing.

The video of the special moment was shared by the clinic on Facebook. And apparently, Dr. Henderson’s crooning is not just a hit with his patients. “You are amazing! I aspire to work for vets with this love and affection for what they do!” comments one fan.

If you are considering a visit to the clinic to see a live performance of the musical doctor, hold that thought. Henderson has more videos belting out soothing melodies.

The doctor admits that he gets a less than stellar reception from other animals, especially from Greg, the office cat. “I think he’s immune to it, though,” Dr. Henderson quips. Well we sure don’t want to be!
