I remember Kahlua's and Chloe's first vet viisit. I think I was more nervous than they were! I have one of those pet carriers that opens from the top instead of the side. The top has a little door that slides open, so I can put treats in there and it make it easier to properly scoop them out. That way I can always look and see if they are all right. Placing a blankie or old rug in there is also good for them. And I always put in a fresh piece of romaine lettuce.
In the waiting area, I always hold the cage on my lap and talk to them to calm the down because there is always some commotion going on. In the exam room, I take them out of the cage and hold them and talk to them until the vet arrives.
Trust me, it's not as traumatic as you think it will be.
You've gotten some great advice, and I don't have anything more to add except for well-wishes.
