At Cat Hospital of Portland, we believe wellness check-ups are imperative to the health and happiness of your cat. The AVMA president, Dr. Douglas G. Aspros, said, “the human-animal bond is stronger than ever, but we are very concerned that pets may not be getting the preventive health care they need”. In 2011, 45% of cat owners didn’t take their feline friend for their annual wellness exam.
One of the top reasons why pet owners don’t take their cat to the vet is because they claim it wasn’t injured or sick. Just because a cat does not appear to have any issues, doesn’t mean they are in good health. Cats instinctively hide their illnesses and injuries. There are many benefits when it comes to taking your cat in for their annual wellness exam. Here are a few that are extra crucial:
• The potential for catching a disease in the early stages.
• Maintaining your cat’s dental health.
• Ensuring your cat is parasite-free.
• Preventative care is better than reactive care.
Trips to the vet can cause anxiety for your cat, but regular visits will make going to the vet less stressful for everyone involved. Here are some tips to get your cat ready for their wellness visit:
