Prepping for a vet visit
1. Call ahead and ask if you need to bring samples or anything specific to the visit.
2. Make a list of any medications or treatments your cat is receiving and take it with you.
3. Check your supply of treatments and medications to see if you need a refill.
4. For a regular check-up, observe your cat in the days before the visit and alert your vet to any changes you note.
- Check ears, eyes and coat for anything unusual.
- Note if your cat is moving differently, not doing things he used to or has experienced any changes in eating habits or bowel movements.
5. If your visit is for a specific issue, note any symptoms, when they happened and any possible triggers. The more details you can provide, the more helpful it will be to your vet.
6. Play it safe! Be sure to have a carrier for your cat to help keep them protected in transit and in the waiting room.
