SHOREWOOD, Wisc - Dr. Noah Arnold takes good care of his patients, of course.
"You know if he ever starts limping on that let me know," Arnold said.
But then the guitar comes out.
"Do you guys want to hear a song?" Arnold said.
"I’ll often play a song for these guys. It just helps them get relaxed. Helps me get relaxed. Helps you get relaxed," Arnold said.
Dr. Noah spent years working in typical veterinary clinics but Dr. Noah is not your typical vet.
When we visited Dr. Noah's Ark Veterinary Clinic, he was preparing three dogs and a cat for a full day of teeth cleanings and surgeries.
His assistants did the shots he set the mood.
"It was something I never could do working at a corporate practice. But I’m sitting on the floor playing songs to these animals really mellows them," Arnold said.
Dr. Noah says he's jumped from 200 to 2,000 patients with more every day.
"I think it's really refreshing for people. I think they sense the fact that it's genuine. That it isn't just a show," said Janet Arnold, an office manager for Dr. Noah’s Ark.
"I had this dream and here it is," Arnold said.
