August 22nd is National Bring Your Cat to the Vet Day according to the American Association of Feline Practitioners. Mobile Laser Vet has a spin on this concept- let’s bring the Vet to Your Cat!
While we can’t see all our kitty patients on the 22nd, we can bring some awareness to the importance of having your feline family member seen by a veterinarian on a regular basis. Statistics show that 44% of cat owners do not take their cat in for regular checkups.
3 myths that stop owners from going to the vet with their cat:
1.”My cat appears healthy, so it doesn’t need veterinary care.”
Cats, unlike dogs, show subtle signs of pain and illness and even the most loving owners don’t recognize it until disease is advanced.
2.”Indoor cats don’t need care.”
Non-infectious diseases are common in cats, including kidney and thyroid disease, arthritis, and dental disease.
3.”Cats act out of spite.”
Humans may act out of spite, but cats act out of fear, stress, illness, or because they don’t have clean litter boxes or adequate scratching places.
You have chosen us as your house call vet because it is much less stressful than carting your cat across town in a scary vehicle to an even scarier waiting room. Our cat patients do better in their own home surrounded by their smells and humans.
If we haven’t examined your cat in over a year, please contact us to schedule a visit.
