View Full Version : Vetenarian 'killer'

Sorry for the crossposts. I just now checked out the cat groups but didn't
really see which one would be best, nor how much overlap there is.

My 15-year old, Sadie Bugbane, was abused on her first trip to the vet, and
since then it is almost worth the vet's life to take her in the doc.

She is small and the squeeze net is ineffective and a vet and helpers are
sure to get slashed if they really try to do their job.

Obviously, if she had a major problem her life would be in danger, her
frantic, ferocious efforts to defend herself could only aggravate the
injury/illness.

BTW, she is absolutely gentle at all other times, except with other cats.

So, the problem and question I pose, is there some way to alleviate the
problem, to sedate her,as it were, before trying to get her to the vet?

Or ... ?

A complication is that she is a wrggler under the best circumstances, it
being perhaps just ten percent of the time that she doesn't object - with
gentle wriggles - to being picked up.

Please help me out here, and realize that I haven't even slightly
exaggerated the problem.

Why in Crawford do my fingers never want to type 'veterinarian'?
