  Agressive cat, how do you take one to the vet?
My year old calico is a sweet kitty, till she arrives at the vets. She growls, hisses, screams, claws and bites anyone in her way. She needs a exam for a digestive problem but no one will treat her. What do we do?

So you mean to say that all the vets in your area are terrified of her and would not treat her eventhough she has an illness that needs medical attaention? Never heard that one before. Correct me if I am wrong.

How about trying phermones? They have calming plug ins that release pheremones to relax and calm cats down.

Another good idea is Rescue Remedy, it can be found at most pet stores and all you do is spray it in the cats mouth to calm them down. Something like that administered before you get to the vet might help alot!

Some vets will supply drugs you can give a cat before bringing them in that will keep them calm. I'd call around and see if you can find a vet that will do this. I know many around me will. They will even give you the drugs if you are moving and don't want the cat to be stressed on a long car trip.

Not sure if you get muzzles, but I would clip her claws shrt in any event. Also, warn your vet about her, so that he is prepared, he may just sedate her for the time being to make it easier.

if the vet has not seen your cat-it is unlikely they will give you sedatives. But once at the vet--they should be able to deal with her. Your cat is not the only evil cat they deal with. Although it may not look or sound nice--the way proper vets/vet tech handle difficult cats should not hurt them. They may throw towels over her, and while wearing thick gloves pin her to the table. If she is really really bad they may have to put her in an induction chamber which is like an empty fish aqarium with a lid and fill it with anesthetic gas to knock her out so they can get a good look at her safely. I'd be surprised if there aren't any vets in your area that can do this.

Ask a vet to prescribe something that will sedate (or at least calm) the cat before the appointment.
