Cat Wellness Veterinary Visits

  One of the things I have noticed in several of the consultations I have done recently with cat parents, is that many feline owners are not taking their cats to the vet unless they are ill.
Just like we humans, cats need to have a check-up once a year and even more often when they become seniors ( 8+). Unlike us, we know when we are not feeling well and can make our appointments to see the doctor to check things out. Cats cannot tell us if they are having a problem with their health. Not only that, but it is instinctual for a cat to hide any health issues or signs of weakness. What this means, is that by the time they display any sort of health issue, they are often in such bad straits that cure or treatment can be extremely difficult and expensive. 
I am not suggesting that you need to go to the vet for vaccinations annually, and this has nothing to do with vaccinations. It has everything to do with making sure they are healthy and not in any discomfort that they may be hiding. A veterinary check-up doesn't have to be expensive and if you take your kitty annually and are able to avoid any major illnesses or problems as a result, you can save thousands of dollars in treatment not to mention, keeping your kitty comfortable, healthy, and happy and giving you peace of mind.
If your cat hasn't seen a vet in over a year, I urge you to make an appointment for a wellness check. And for those of you who are worried about actually getting your cat in the carrier to go to the vet, there are some excellent Youtube videos as to how to get your cat carrier friendly and in a worse case scenario, there are a few mobile vets around who will come to your home to check out the cat. SO there are no excuses.
