Have We Seen Your Cat Lately?

Have We Seen Your Cat
During the spring, we see many dogs at the clinic for their annual heartworm/tick borne disease blood test, exams and vaccinations, and to pick up flea/tick and heartworm preventatives. But, have we seen your cat lately? Don’t forget that our feline friends need annual veterinary care, too. Even if you have an indoor only cat that appears healthy, annual check-ups are recommended as cats are exceptional at hiding signs of illness until problems have reached an advanced stage. If problems are detected early, they can be managed with diet, treated with medications, or monitored with early detection blood-work. Early detection of possible health problems can spare your cat from suffering and spare you the large expenses that letting things go to an advanced stage may cause.
