A Calm Cat Starts at Home

A stress-free experience begins from home. It is essential that you provide pleasant vibes for your kitty from carrier and car to clinic. Find out how you to make the trip here a peaceful one for your cat by exploring here.

Pre-Consultation Journey

Upon arrival at Amber Cat Vet, do place your cat’s carrier at our concierge counter carrier-shelf or on a chair beside you, as cats prefer to be elevated and away from ground level. A towel will be provided to place over the carrier to shield from bright light and the sight of unfamiliar cats, which may be stressful to some. This towel can also be used during consultation.

You will be invited into the consultation room prior to your consultation to allow your cat out of the carrier. Place the carrier on the floor, open the carrier door and allow kitty to explore the room. However, if kitty chooses not to leave the carrier, don’t force him/her out! 

Kitty Consultation

Our veterinarian will begin the consultation by having a chat with you to obtain a medical history while allowing your cat to do as he/she pleases. Sudden approaches by strangers can be especially frightening for cats. Once your cat has calmed down while in the veterinarian’s presence, the examination may begin.
If your cat would rather not leave the carrier, your veterinarian will request to open the upper half of the carrier for examination. Our veterinarian’s aim is to minimise handling of your cat that may cause stress; as little holding, repositioning, and restraining as possible, while still completing the necessary physical examination.

After the consultation is over, your veterinarian will assist you in returning your cat to the carrier. Bring your cat to the waiting area and place the carrier either at the reception counter carrier-shelf or on a chair. Do remember not to face the carrier to another carrier, as some cats are not comfortable around a cat that they are not familiar with! 

Friendly Feline Goes Home

Remember to praise kitty for being brave while being outside of the house. Reward with favourite food, some play time and pleasing strokes and pats. A pleasant experience for your cat from the beginning to the end!
