Has Your Cat Been to the Vet Lately?

According to the American Humane Society, our feline companions go to the veterinarian about half as often as dogs. Many people only take their cat to the vet when they are sick—and often, that illness might have been avoided with preventive care.

While it’s true that cats can be low-maintenance pets compared to dogs, they still need routine wellness care including exams, vaccines and preventive medications to stay healthy. Plus, when we see cats regularly, we establish a baseline for their health and can often identify changes and diagnose diseases before they get too serious. Felines are very adept at hiding illness and injury, so they may have been suffering a long time before you know it.

So—how long has it been since your cat saw the vet? If it’s been over a year (or you can’t remember!) schedule an appointment online or call us at 503-538-8303 today!
