I used to take my little rescue cat, Sedona, to the local vet that was just around the corner. She has feline herpes from being around other cats before she was rescued - you'll see why this is relevant later. When I put her in the see through bag to take her to the vet she would miaow a lot and was obviously scared. When I arrived at the vet, she invariably had to wait and 9 times out of 10 she would be sandwiched between dog vet appointments. This scared her even more. So much so that there was a large amount of discharge from her eyes during and for a period after the visit from the feline herpes.
I got sick of this and found The Cat Doctor. Nicky and Shree came to visit Sedona. Not only do they obviously love cats, they spent an hour with Sedona checking her out, seeing how she moved in her own environment. Sedona was a little wary to start with but soon warmed up and was playing. This allowed the vet to see her naturally move where some issues to watch were picked up. These are issues that would never have been seen when Sedona was in a foreign vet scared with her head buried in my arms. Once the healthcheck was finished, Sedona bounded outside and continued hunting for mice a very happy cat. I wish I had done this earlier and will always use The Cat Doctor to look after my little one.
