Our cat has to be sedated when we go to the vet. I doubt she even remembers the visit other than getting the shot that sedated her! I would try that or see if you can find a mobile vet.

Why can’t you just use another vet that DOES do house calls? It will be okay for the cat to see a different vet if it means he’ll receive treatment, Bee.

Shesaidyes :  just here for the cute kitty photos. Love this established senior love muffin. I’d call ahead to let them know you’re coming and ask to be taken to your room as soon as possible and charge an on file card to reduce time there and try to eliminate other stressors like other animals in the waiting area.

Be sure the vet also checks your kitty’s teeth really well.  Several years before our old guy passed, we took him to the vet because of a swollen eye/face with discharge.  The vet did a quick look, gave us eye ointment (boy was that fun to put in his eye), and sent us on our way.  After a few days of the eye ointment doing nothing, we took him back again to find out that he actually had two abscessed teeth and the infection was so bad it had migrated to his eye.  They ended up pulling the two teeth, put him on antibiotics, and he improved quickly.  Hope your kitty feels better soon!
