|Thanks, Yoda, and thank you, Spice, Phoebe and Mommy, for understanding how hard the stress is on me, as well as Mom and Dad. Mom will talk to my vet about your suggestion.
I've gone feral, as you say, Spice, and stayed that way for two days after vet visits, hissing and growling at even Mom and Dad. I quit eating altogether after one vet visit. I changed vets, tried house calls, and changed vets again. Now Mom and Dad halt the visit when I show signs of going feral, as long as it doesn't threaten my health. After my last vet visit, I was back to "normal" within 10-15 minutes, so it seems to work.
I also go through 7-10 days of massive shedding after a vet visit, plus not feeling as good as usual. So stress is not a small issue.
Yet, I was very good at the vet's until I was about 16. I was scared, but all I did was try to hide. I didn't hiss or growl. Somehow, my "evil twin" started taking over my body the last couple of years, and she's been causing me all kinds of problems.
I have a typical Olde Furt memory -- furgetful -- but I'll try to update here after I see the vet again. Thanks!
