After you arrive…

While in the clinic waiting room, keep the towel on the carrier and sit as far away as possible from dogs.

After returning home (if other cats are around), take a cloth and rub the other cats. Then rub the returning cat with the same cloth – this can reduce conflicts.

Don’t worry if your cat seems unhappy after their visit to the clinic. The minor stress experienced is not harmful to your cat’s health or to your relationship with it.
