A Calm Cat Starts at Home
Upon arrival at Amber Cat Vet, do place your cat’s carrier at our concierge counter carrier-shelf or on a chair beside you, as cats prefer to be elevated and away from ground level. A towel will be provided to place over the carrier to shield from bright light and the sight of unfamiliar cats, which may be stressful to some. This towel can also be used during consultation.
You will be invited into the consultation room prior to your consultation to allow your cat out of the carrier. Place the carrier on the floor, open the carrier door and allow kitty to explore the room. However, if kitty chooses not to leave the carrier, don’t force him/her out!
If your cat would rather not leave the carrier, your veterinarian will request to open the upper half of the carrier for examination. Our veterinarian’s aim is to minimise handling of your cat that may cause stress; as little holding, repositioning, and restraining as possible, while still completing the necessary physical examination.After the consultation is over, your veterinarian will assist you in returning your cat to the carrier. Bring your cat to the waiting area and place the carrier either at the reception counter carrier-shelf or on a chair. Do remember not to face the carrier to another carrier, as some cats are not comfortable around a cat that they are not familiar with!
