Unfortunately our feline friends get a bum deal when it comes to veterinary care. Owners find it stressful to wrassle them into the carrier with gardening gloves on, listen to them howl the entire care ride, and then try to cause bodily harm to their doctor (well, not all of them!). And besides, they seem so healthy. . .
Well let’s clear up some misconceptions. Cats need and deserve medical care just as much as dogs do. And cats are very, very good at hiding illness from others. Even if they do not leave the house they should be vaccinated, and there are numerous parasitic and other illnesses that they can contract or develop, even in the relative safety of your home. For example, many cats wander around for years with exquisitely painful lesions on their teeth, and many cats nowadays are obese, leading to type II diabetes.
We know that you love your cats, so show them that you do by providing them with health care that will allow them to be happy and healthy for many years to come.
p.s. we can give you some tips to make the trip less stressful too!
