Doug Db, Monica, President Trump discussed on Let's Talk Pets
To the Doug DB show. We are here with Monica latent, president of professional pet sitters and. You know, sometimes cats little nervous when we have to take him to the vet and sometimes the actual trip to the vet could be even worse than the vets. Visit. So can you give us some tips on bear creek, bits it? Absolutely. So that's one thing that at the veterinary hospital, they work where we really try to work on is pure free visits for our feline friends because one you want the visit to go well for the pet and the pet owner there's nothing worse than, you know, having to bring your pet into the vet and having the visible horribly, and then as a pet owner, you feel bad that you put your cat through that. And you know, it's just not fun for anybody. And you want, you know, your pet to get regular exams and be seen so anything that can make that trip. A little easier is all the better for everybody involved. So as far as fear free visits. I always start with the number one thing at home is the carrier getting the pet to they animal hospital. So keep in mind many vets to do house calls, but if they do not and you're bringing the pet in or maybe the pet sick. And it's something that they can't do at home. You know, you're going to need to bring the pet in usually in a carrier. So I always suggest that, you know, leave the carrier out an irregular place on a regular visit a regular basis, if you can't I always, you know, if it's one of the ones that are the hard plastic ones are the top sunscreen will all leave mine as like a pet bed in the corner of one of the rooms that put blankets and stuff in there and little treats in there and leave it out all the time that way the pets kinda used to sleeping with it. And the only thing that is changing is just the cover going on it when they need to travel, but it's a place that they're used to laying in and they feel comfortable, and the other thing that I also suggest is they have feel away makes a product like a fair Mon spray, and I always spray, the pet some blankets and stuff that are in their carrier. A least a half hour before you leave that'll help take some of the things I eighty down as well. So then as long as. As you can get them to the office. Then when you get to the office a couple of things you can ask your veterinarian Abell is if they have feline friendly scheduling, for example, and our office will do blocks during the day. We'll have only feeling appointments that way they're not passing dogs coming in and out are they're not hearing dogs barking in other rooms, and that helps you know with your feline friends. So they're not getting a little anxious. Also, you know, an feeling from the exam room one that they can, you know, put their carrier, and that has, you know, maybe Thurmond spray on the, you know, counter Manson, everything which we do at our office, you know, to help calm them down and make them a little more ease. Also, you know, if you bring them in instead of setting the carrier on the floor to where other pets could walk by it. You know, maybe having a bench China to where you can put them up at, you know, level with you that way they're not interacting with other pets are people walking by those are all things that can help alleviate the stress for that. Visit getting that pet in an fast men are of course, you know, obviously helps the the amount of time that they're susceptible to interacting with other pets. They may not be happy about doing. And then, you know, once they're in there, you know, just going slow and Dino treats work to a certain extent. But oftentimes when they are a little anxious. They they don't want trees. They don't wanna eat. They just kinda wanna get done what they have to get down and go home. So, you know, really just going slow with the cat making them comfortable. You know, lots of putting lots of, you know, safety feeling secure. You know, bringing your own blanket from home and letting them wrap them up in that blanket. So they feel safe keeping the pet with you. Those are all things that kind of bring down the inside of that visit with your cat. Another thing also is if those things alone don't do the job and the pet is still a little anxious. You know, talk to your event about prescriptions or maybe trying some composure or some zucchini know some of the anti anxiety medications. Start them a day or two before your visit in that way. The pets anxiety can come down even further for Monica. Thank you very much. And I think that that helped all our female lovers out there. Get the visit to the vet safe and comfortable. Thank you. So very much. Thank you have a great day coming up summer's here.
