When I took two or three months old Elsa to the local vet in Uganda for the first time, I was surprised to see that the vet -a tall, strong looking man- called three assistants to hold Elsa when he gave her injections. Three young men who also looked strong came from the next room.
And the vet put on thick gloves which were thicker than those for cleaning. With the gloves it seemed difficult to use a small hypodermic syringe. When I took Michael to the same vet, he did the same thing for the still smaller Michael. I was proud of my both kittens.They could bear it.
