Finding An Excellent Veterinarian

After my sweet little dog became ill, I knew that I needed a really wonderful veterinarian to make things right. I started looking around for a doctor who really understood what we were up against, and I was pleased to find a provider who accepted my insurance and actively worked hard to improve her patients care. It was really incredible to feel the difference that her efforts made, and I wanted to write a blog all about the benefits of working with a great veterinarian. Check out this blog for great information that could help you to protect your pets.

Make A Spay Service Easier On A Nervous Cat With The Right Steps

Having your female cat spayed is essential to being a responsible pet owner. Still, it can come with some concerns when you've never had this procedure done for a pet. Whether your other pets were already spayed or this is your first cat, you'll need to explore what steps you can take to ease everyone's concerns. 

If your cat is especially nervous around strangers or in new environments, consider the following tips to make the spay easier to schedule.

Book the Appointment Early  

The earlier you bring your cat to the clinic, the earlier it will likely be seen. An afternoon appointment could mean the clinic is already very busy and your cat will be kept in a kennel very close to other animals. Instead of worrying that your cat will be overwhelmed by this environment, look for a clinic that has availability in the morning. By bringing your cat first thing in the morning, the clinic will be much quieter and they can begin the procedure right away without a wait. 

Since you'll need to fast your cat by withholding food before their appointment, an early morning appointment will prevent your cat from begging for food once you've woken up. After getting up, you can place your cat in the carrier and bring them to a clinic without the need for waiting around for hours. 

Dedicate a Recovery Room

Setting up a room for your cat to recover in is helpful, especially since your cat could feel extra sensitive after the procedure. Your cat needs to be in a calm and quiet environment after being spayed, making it so important to have a room set up to ease any of these concerns. The room should include food, water, a bed, places to hide, and their litter box. Avoid having any areas they can jump onto since this is discouraged due to stitches from the spay. 

The room should be quiet, and other pets must be restricted to ensure that your cat won't be moving around too much during recovery. 

As you prepare to have your cat spayed, there's a lot to consider since you could be nervous about your cat staying calm. Since you could be anxious about your cat being spayed due to it being the first time you've had this procedure done, the above tips can help settle many of your concerns. Contact a vet to ask any questions and set up a spay and neuter appointment for your cat as soon as possible.
