Every time you take your cat to the veterinarian, it’s a learning experience for her. Whether that experience is good or bad is up to you. Although it may never be a place kitty loves, you can do some training to help lower her stress level. Bring some treats, baby food, canned food or even just pieces of her kibble. Offer her a treat while in the waiting room.
When in the examination room, have the technician offer more treats before beginning to handle her. One way to help a cat who is very nervous about procedures such as temperature taking is to offer a small spoonful of baby food or canned food. Even the vet can help reduce the cat’s stress level by greeting the cat and offering treats.
