Taking Your Cat to the Veterinarian

Statistics tell us that cats only visit the veterinary clinic about half as often as dogs, despite needing the same kind of preventative care. One of the reasons cat owners point to in order to explain this is how much their cats seem to dread visiting the vet. Fortunately, a trip to the animal hospital doesn’t have to be a bad experience for your cat. There are many things you can do to make vet trips more comfortable.

Watch this video for advice on making pet hospital trips easier on your cat. Remember to stay calm yourself and to reward all of your cat’s calm behavior to reinforce the idea that visiting the vet is a positive event.

At Chastain Veterinary Medical Group, our caring vets understand the unique needs of cats and can make your visit a good experience for you and your pet. To schedule an appointment with one of our veterinarians, call (972) 529-5033 for Meadow Brook Animal Hospital in McKinney or call (972) 230-1309 for Preston Road Animal Hospital in Dallas.
