How important are vet visits?

Healthy Kitty = Happy Kitty! 

Just like humans, it’s so important for your favorite feline to head to the vet once a year for an annual checkup! During their wellness visit, a vet will be able to determine their overall health as well as if they’re needing shots of any sort. Cats, unlike dogs, won’t show you if they’re sick or in pain, so a wellness visit is crucial to maintaining a long and happy life for your kitty.

During a visit, vets will go over a cat’s oral health, weight, lung and heart health, and more to determine if all is well. Bringing your cat to the vet on a regular basis will also help make it a less stressful situation in the future.
