Safely Transporting Your Feline Friend

By September 15, 2015Pet Talk

Getting your furry friend to the Vet Clinic is not always an easy feat. Follow these steps to help make it a more enjoyable experience for you and your pet.

  • Make your cat feel comfortable and familiar with the carrier. You can try leaving it out somewhere in the house with the door open for a few days before their visit, putting treats inside or even feeding them in it. You can also try putting familiar bedding or clothing with your scent on it.
  • Keeping yourself calm will help them feel calm and safe. Cats can sense our anxiety or frustrations, which will only make the situation worse.
  • Reward positive behavior, they do not learn from force or punishment. This could be by giving a treat or even playing with their favorite toy.
  • Another option would be to try Feliway, this is a synthetic feline pheromone that will help with stressful situations.
