Watch: Veterinarian Sings to Frightened Dog Before Surgery

| Trending News

When a dog named Ruby was recently scheduled for a spay surgery at Fox Hollow Animal Hospital in Lakewood, Colorado, the pup was pretty nervous about the procedure.

To calm the agitated dog down, her veterinarian, Dr. Ross Henderson, pulled out his guitar and began to play Elvis Presley's Can't Help Falling In Love," and Ruby's sweet reaction will melt your heart.

"It was a special moment," Henderson told TODAY.

While Ruby isn't the only animal Henderson sings to, she might be the most appreciative. Henderson shared that he and other staff members often perform for the office cat, Greg, but the feline doesn't seem too enthused about the tunes.

"I think he’s immune to it, though," Henderson said, adding that his own dog, Charlie, is also "sick of me singing."

Henderson works with his father, Anthony Henderson, and brother Ryan, who are also vets, although Ross is the only member of the family who sings to the patients.

He shared that he thinks the music and special attention can help the animals feel comforted while they're at the hospital, and added that he wants to do whatever he can to make them feel safe while under his care.

"They just love us like crazy," the 28-year-old said. "You can't repay for how much they give to us."

The video has received more than 140,000 views, along with a little more than 4,000 reactions and shares on its Facebook page.
