Back to School Stress

Hello everyone! It’s back to school season, which means busy schedules and lots on the to-do list. And we know an added stress can be getting your cat into the vet office. So, here are some tips to help make the cat carrier a more comfortable place for your feline friend. Try leaving the cat carrier open and accessible. Put it somewhere your cat likes to relax, fill it with treats and toys, and spritz some Feliway calming pheromone spray wait 15 minutes or catnip on a towel and place inside. The best carriers have openings on the front and top, so that we can find the gentlest way to get your cat in and out of the carrier. 

During stressful events, pets can get out or become lost. Please don’t forget to have your pet’s microchips data updated and checked annually.

Remember, we are open 7 days a week, 7:00 am to 7:00 pm, so you can find the best time to fit your next veterinary visit into your schedule. See you soon!
