We know that a trip to the vet is not every animal's idea of a good time. There are some cats and dogs that simply cannot move beyond that fear barrier. Fearful animals are less likely to brought to the vet by their owners simply because of the stress it causes to both parties. Even if they do make it to the vet, their level of fear can limit what we are able to accomplish during their visit. These fearful animals are perfect candidates for pre-visit pharmaceuticals. Pre-visit pharmaceuticals are short-acting, situational anxiety relieving medications we can have patients take at home before their visit to us. They can go a long way in helping animals be more comfortable at the vet and even learn to overcome their fear and anxiety.
Check out what our receptionist, Caitie, had to say about pre-visit pharmaceuticals and her cat, Shelly:
