Playing classical music in your kennel room is an excellent way to keep hospitalized pets calm and quiet. We found an FM radio station low on the dial that plays gentle classical music all day long. A battery-operated dollar store radio does the trick, and you won't fret if it breaks in the daily tornado that is the veterinary practice.
