I've had to go through many vets to find one who I felt was willing to put the 'effort' into caring for my kids.
I don't know your particular situation, but I would question why my vet was not addressing this problem - obviously it is stressful to your cat.
The reason I haven't spoken with my vet about this in the past is because my normal vet seems to handle the cats behavior pretty well.
As I mentioned I had a vet other than my regular one due to the fact that I wanted to get in asap.
Next day I stuffed the pill into a bit of braunschweiger, her favorite treat, which she wolfed down.
About an hour later she fell asleep in my lap, purring.
This whole issue really dawned on me over the weekend.I took her to the vet, she had her surgery, and I picked her up later in the day.She was very groggy when I picked her up, and I held and petted her as she slowly woke up.After the fact, the more I thought about it the more I felt the need to find a way to deal with Quinn's hostility.I plan to discuss this with my normal vet after the holiday and wanted some opinions from people that have to deal with this sort of behavior too. I could try a muzzle but that will only protect the vet, not really make it any easier to examine the cat. I can see it being an issue if it numbs any pain the cat might feel since pain can indicate a problem.
