Cats and Their Carriers


Dr. Kelly St. Denis

Dr. Kelly St. Denis, a past President of the American Association of Feline Practitioners and co-editor of the Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery appeared in two national Steve Dale’s Pet World national radio programs and offers a deep dive into carrier training in a 2-part conversation.

Carrier training is possible (believe it or not), and Dr. St. Denis offers tips on how to do that. And what types of carriers are generally best and where to put the carrier in the car. And how to enhance comfort for the cat in the car.

Attempting to set up cats for success such as using products like the pheromone Feliway, a nutraceutical like Zylkene can also help to take the edge off, and for some cats even a pharmaceutical product to relieve anxiety.
