Why Your Cat Needs An Annual Vet Visit

Posted by

Sometimes, we get into the habit of taking our cats to the vet only when they have a problem. When we do TNR with feral cats, we take them to the vet to be neutered and vaccinated. We take our indoor cats to the vet for the occasional vaccine. But when our cats seem happy and healthy, we can let years go by without a visit to the vet. However, cats should have regular checkups. Here are the top 3 reasons why your cat needs an annual vet visit.

1) Regular visits can reveal health problems that your cat has been hiding.

Vets can examine and screen cats for high blood pressure, over active thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism), diabetes, cancer, and heart murmurs. Early diagnosis means your cat will have more options for treatment, lower costs for care, and better comfort and quality of life if she does have a disease.

2) Regular visits allow you to discuss behavioural and personality changes in your cat.

If your kitty becomes unusually aggressive or displays abnormal behaviour, it may be caused by stress, pain, or an underlying medical condition. Discuss all behaviour changes with your vet to get her opinion.

3) Regular visits can manage your cat’s parasite prevention plan.

Even indoor-only cats may be infected by parasites such as heartworms, ear mites, or fleas.

(Several of these parasites can also cause disease and debilitation in the humans of the household.) Your vet can help you plan and implement an effective parasite prevention/treatment program for your pets.

If your cat hasn’t seen a vet in 12 months, why not set up an appointment today? Your cat will thank you for it!
