Fear, anxiety and stress are common in patients arriving at a veterinary hospital. This often makes visits stressful for their pet parents as well. Sometimes, particularly with cats, it also means that the pet does not receive timely medical care, as pet-parents often put off appointments for as long as possible. Fortunately, there are many ways to address the problem, starting right from when you are preparing to leave the house. Here at Fisher Glen Animal Hospital we use a combination of treats, and examination techniques that do not push your pet over their tolerance. Occasionally we may even recommend a light sedation that you can give to your pet at home before you leave.
