Preparing for the Visit to the Vet: Carriers

by
  • If possible, bring the carrier out of storage and into the cats' environment well ahead of the visit.
  • Ideally, the cat should love its carrier as a dog loves its crate.
  • Leave the carrier out 24/7 in a room the cat likes to sleep in.
  • Take the lid off the carrier to start with if needed.
  • Have the carrier lined with a thick blanket and piece of clothing or cloth.....with YOUR scent.
  • Leave toys and treats and catnip in the carrier.
  • A secure carrier where the top comes off for the examination is needed.
  • Only one cat per carrier.
  • Carrier should go in the boot well in the  back seat or buckled on the seat.
  • Always double-check that the carrier is secure before picking it up and carry with the handle while supporting the bottom.
  • Loaner carriers are available at Central Cat Hospital for a deposit which is refunded when the carrier is returned.
