Going to the vet can be a scary experience for dogs, especially young ones.

Little Ruby was anxious before her spay surgery the other day at Fox Hollow Animal Hospital in Lakewood, Colorado. To help relax the fearful pup, Dr. Ross Henderson took out his guitar, crawled into the kennel with Ruby and crooned Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling In Love.”

The video of the sweet serenade was posted to the animal hospital’s Facebook page on April 27. It has since been viewed 270,000 times and shared more than 4,000 times. It’s safe to say the Internet is collectively swooning.
 

 

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

“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,” the Facebook post read. “Dr. Ross has mastered the technique and sweet Ruby was so thankful for that.”

Henderson, 28, is a part-time musician, according to KUSA Channel 9 News. Ruby appears to be one of his biggest fans, melting peacefully into Henderson’s lap as he croons. She’s absolutely putty in his hands, as are we.
