When you come in for an appointment with your cat we understand how stressful it can be for you & them! They hate the carrier, the car, & the dogs. That's why we are making special changes for our feline friends and hope to help you make future visits to the clinic easier & more enjoyable.
We all know this is a cat's world and we're just living in it! To accommodate for this and in your kitty's best interest, upon arrival to our practice you & your pet will immediately be placed in our special "cat specific" room - away from barking dogs & stressful extraneous noises & stimulation.
We see to the special needs of your cat here with an in-room weighing scale, "pheromone friendly" environment using Feliway room diffuser for a calmer atmosphere & soft table top blankets for your cats comfort. No posters of dogs on the walls of this room!
When this room is already occupied we will see to the needs of your cat in whatever way possible to make him or her more comfortable & less frightened.
Training Your Cat & Environmental Enrichment
Cats can learn & be trained to do just about anything you can train a dog to do - and cats do it with more finesse! Start early as a kitten if possible but even older cats will readily learn "new tricks" with the proper positive reinforcement. Never use punishment for your cat - it just doesn't work & will make training more difficult. The following are some wonderful links & videos to help get you on your way.
