Rocket loves going to the vet. They love him too. No matter what they do to him he still loves them, (unless it's he last vet we had. She was horrible and I hope she never passes her internship!
Luna doesn't like going to the vet but she is quiet all the way there and back. No messes in the carrier either. She's not a people person though and will hide by me the whole time she is being examined.
Isis is the same as Luna in respects about people, but she is ver vocal in the carrier and only peed in the carrier in it once after going to the vet with my MIL and her puppy.
Twig hates the vet and will growl and hiss at her. He's very vocal in the carrier both to and from the vets office. he's never pottied in the carrier though.
I've never had a bad experience with my normal vets but with any of the interns they've recently seem to have, I've had nothing but bad experiences.
Being so protective of my cats, when they do something I dislike I'm instantly angered like for example, the first intern I dealt with asked me if Rocket was a Siamese. I was not happy right then because if you don't know your cats, how are you going to heal mine?
The second one made Rocket SCREAM and try to get away from her when she was cleaning his ears and checking him out for a URI. He did not like her from the get go when he came out of the carrier he crawled up on me instead of going to the vet like he normally does. To top it off, she didn't have either cats medical records out like the normal vets do so she didn't even know what cats I had and what meds they'd been on before etc.
Recently though I noticed that my normal vet is not being very nice anymore to us and that's got me concerned. My MIL had a falling out with her about her puppies and when we went in with one of our cats, I was trying to show her where our cats lip was swollen and she snapped at me that she couldn't see with my fingers in the way.
What the heck? I was only trying to show you where I had seen the problem. So a second later she tells us it's allergies and gives her a shot and basically shoves us out the door.
Time to find a new vet I think.
I didn't want to change vets this late in my cats lives. But I have to do what's best for them.
