National Take Your Cat to the Vet Day

August 22nd is National Take Your Cat to the Vet Day and The Cat Community wants you to help keep your cat healthy with routine check-ups. Did you know that 83% of cats visit the veterinarian before their 1st birthday, but over 50% don’t return until they become sick or are in pain. With regular healthcare, your veterinarian can often detect conditions that may affect your cat’s long-term health.

Why schedule regular check-ups?

  1. Cats age MUCH more rapidly than humans.
  2. Cats are masters at hiding sickness and pain.
  3. Your cat may be overweight and in danger of health conditions.
  4. During your visit, you can discuss any behavior changes with your veterinarian.
  5. Preventive care is better than reactive care.
