We all know that soothing music can help calm us when we feel a bit jittery and nervous.
But do you know it can also work in animals as well?
This is what Veterinarian Dr. Ross Henderson did to a frightened dog named Ruby, using music to calm her down before undergoing a spaying surgery. In a video Fox Hollow Hospital’s Facebook Page, it shows the handsome crooner is singing a rendition of Elvis Presley’s Can’t Help Falling In Love to the anxious furball.
According to Dr. Henderson, he regards it as “a special moment.”
The hospital posted, “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.”
This 28 year-old swoon-worthy vet practices in a veterinarian hospital in Colorado with his father and brother, both vets as well. He says that he always wanted to be a vet like his dad ever since he was a kid, as well as play the guitar.
He eventually began to incorporate his love for music in his practice. He believes that being admitted in the hospital is a scary place to be, and through music, animals could feel a lot safer and calmer.
