Check List for a Stree Free Veterinary Visit
At the Cat Clinic of Plymouth, we know that our clients want their kitties to have a happy and healthy life. Part of achieving this level of wellness is by scheduling preventative care visits routinely with your veterinarian. However, getting some cats to the animal hospital can be a bit stressful for both you and your cat.
Make the Experience Stress Free
Here is a checklist for making that trip to the animal hospital to see your veterinarian much less tricky.
- Choose the correct carrier for your cat.
- Make the carrier a place of comfort. See our blog.
- Familiarize your cat with its carrier
- Use feline facial pheromones for a stress free ride
- Ask your veterinarian if they recommend any other medications for travel
- Cover the carrier for travel and for entrance into the animal hospital
- Make a list of changes in your cat and questions that you want to ask the veterinarian
- Allow your cat to familiarize itself with its new surroundings
- Make an appointment at a veterinary clinic designated as a Cat Friendly Practice by the Association of Feline Practitioners like the Cat Clinic of Plymouth
