5 Benefits to Routine Vet Visits

August 22nd is National Bring Your Cat to the Vet Day. Here are the top 5 reasons routine vet visits are a vital part for your cat to live a long, healthy life.


Alternatives to Declawing

Feline declawing is an elective and ethically controversial procedure, which is NOT medically necessary for cats in most instances. Declawing entails the amputation of a cat’s third phalanx [P3], or third ‘toe bone.’.


Cat Vaccines

Vaccines help to protect against specific infectious diseases caused by some viruses and bacteria. They stimulate the body’s immune system to destroy the organism and ‘remember’ it so that it can fight against infection again if necessary in the future.


Environmental Guidelines

Behavior problems are a leading cause of pets being surrendered or euthanized. These problems often occur in cats because their needs have not been fully met. Cats need resources to perform their natural behaviors and have control over their social interactions.


Friends for Life-Purina- Senior Cats

Just as children depend on parents for their well-being, your cat depends on you to provide ongoing care and comfort. This responsibility includes taking your cat in for regular veterinary visits.


Getting Your Cat to the Vet

Providing good health care, especially preventive health care, can allow your cats to have longer, more comfortable lives. However, this cannot happen unless they see the veterinarian for needed care.


House Soiling

House-soiling is one of the most common reasons why pet owners abandon or relinquish their cats. Unfortunately, these cats frequently end up in shelters where they often are euthanized.


Hyperthyroidism

Feline hyperthyroidism is the most common endocrine disorder in middle-aged and older cats. It occurs in about 10 percent of feline patients over 10 years of age. Hyperthyroidism is a disease caused by an overactive thyroid gland that secretes excess thyroid hormone.


NSAIDS Handout

A ‘painkiller’ known as a ‘non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug’ (or NSAID) has been prescribed for your cat. These drugs are commonly used in humans and animals to help relieve pain, fever and inflammation – most commonly associated with degenerative joint disease (arthritis).


Nursing Care Handout

When in the unfamiliar and often scary place known as “the veterinary practice” your cat needs your confidence and reassurance, especially if it is sick. Your behavior greatly influences your cat’s sense of security and its behavior at the practice. Your nursing skills at home also play a major role in the success of the treatments that your veterinarian has prescribed to help your cat recover from illness or injury.


Vet Visits Don't Have to be Stressful

Vet Visits Don’t Have to Be STRESSFUL It can be downright difficult getting our cats to the vet, however, routine preventive healthcare is essential for your cat to live a long, happy, healthy life. Many cat owners are all too familiar with “the chase” that ensues as soon as the cat sees the carrier. August 22nd is National Bring Your Cat to the Vet Day and here are 5 tips on easing the stress of the vet visit for your cat AND yourself.
