Is this your sweet little kitty when you let him know you have to take him to the v-e-t?
Does he intuit your thoughts and disappear into the the ‘cat parallel universe’ that mere humans cannot see through????
No wonder they resist your efforts to haul them to the vet. That’s where awful things happen. That’s where they are certainly not the predator, but the prey.
Even at my office, equipped with soft fabric on top of a padded table, I’m still a v-e-t! It’s still a horrible, humiliating, and overstimulating assault to the kitty perspective and energetic body. It’s still people they don’t know or trust. And, it still smells awful!
Thank goodness, or anyone else you want to thank, for Homeopathic remedies!
Before you head out for that vet visit remember that Homeopathic Aconitum napellus (Aconite for short), might be your cat’s best friend at these stressful times.
Aconite is the perfect remedy when anyone, any species, experiences great fear, especially if combined with anxiety. Here are some specific symptoms of the Aconite picture, see if your animal fits:
- Great, great fears: crowds, strangers, new situations, noises, smells, lights, etc.
- Inconsolable anxiety, panic attacks
- Forebodings of impending events (this is where cats excel)
- Oversensitive to light, noise
- Intense pains
There are a number of Homeopathic remedies that can help make the vet visit less stressful on everyone, but Aconite is at the top of my list. You might need a dose yourself!
Make sure to dose once before leaving the house, and again while in the waiting room.
Aconite is the number one remedy for shock, any type of shock. Your animal might be suddenly shocked to be taken to the vet, or have a sudden illness that is, in itself, shocking. Any type of accident will have a shock component – Aconite could be helpful.
Aconite could make all the difference between a calm, stress-free vet visit, and a terror-filled, never-forgotten event. Always have Aconite in your emergency kit, it will serve you well.
