If you need to take your cat in for treatment, you may need to put a muzzle on your cat. Such a muzzle can keep the cat from harming anyone around, but not all muzzles are alike.
Some muzzles block a cat’s face and sight, which can cause the cat to panic. Other muzzles allow the cat to see what’s going on, but not allow the cat to attack anyone.
Depending on the personality of your cat, consider using a muzzle only when necessary. Muzzles can help your cat get the treatment it needs but doesn’t necessarily want, like humans feel about going to the dentist.
