Have to Go Back to Vet Again

Monday, July 09, 2012

On Saturday, I'll be bringing Harry back to the vet. This time, it's for a recheck on his problem eye infection. It's responding slowly, but he's showing several signs of relief and progress. And this time, I think I'll be less nervous knowing that others have written about their cats making a lot of noise en route also.

Once he's there, he is such a good boy. But he's like a child who knows he can get away with throwing a tantrum with mom, but not in front of others.

I really like this vet and can breathe easier that she's thorough and less expensive. I couldn't continue with the former vet on an affordability basis. The cost per visit and perscription was too high and unrealistic.

Wishing all a happy day.

    Put 3 pissed off cats into 1 carrier and you'll decide that the best vet is the one who is closest to you! I am just so bad about making appts for them that I figure it's just easier this way. (Although it is always a bunch of fun trying to re-carrier them when we go to leave the vet!)

    Cats do like to voice their displeasure when on the road. (I think it is to discourage us from taking them) My son's cat had to enure a 5 hour road trip when he moved out of state. The howling was unbearable.
    Over the years there has only been one cat that we have had that actually liked car rides... but we had taken her frequently as a kitten. Other drivers would be surprised when they saw her calmly looking out the window.
    I'm glad that Harry is improving. emoticon

    My husband and I were just talking about how well cats can train their humans! Hoping things get straightened out soon....have you seen the e-book....Eat, Spray, Love?

    Jesse, sorry to hear that Harry hasn't been well. Hope the checkup is good. Ms Molly is very quiet going to the vet but PolyDactyl starts to care the minute you put her in the car. By the time we get to the vet, her little pads are wet with sweat. It always kills me to take her but like Harry, the minute she's there, shes' fine and starts purring.

    hugs....Mary Anne

    Does your kitty stand in the middle of the room and essentialy shout at you to look at him several times during the day? And then turn his nose up at whatever you put in his food bowl that he loved just an hour ago? That is what my son's cat does to him. The cat is pushing 18. I'm thinking that it won't be long before he will be gone and I'll miss him.

    It is great to find a vet that you like, who is resonable and thorough. emoticon

    Jesse, most cats do not like traveling, so they are very vocal about it. Just in case you have any doubt about their feelings. LOL All seven of my cats cry and try to get out of the carrier on the way to the vet. One did not out of the carrier and it took us over an hour to get the cat out from under the car seat. My hands were all cut up by the time the cat got out.

    I am very glad you found a good vet that is fair in her cost. I travel a full hour one way to a vet because of her rates and her medical skills. All my animals love her.

    How is your kitty doing?

    Now imagine a 12 hr trip by plane & car where he howls the whole way & almost eats his way out of the soft carrier . . . literally.

    Yeah, moving wa an experience I'll not soon forget.
