Psst…it’s me, CAT Stanley. Do you want to help your cat live a longer and healthier life? Of course you do! What respectable cat owner wouldn’t? How can you do that? With regular veterinary visits! That’s how.
This week is Take Your Cat to the Veterinarian Week. Did you know that? There’s a whole week dedicated to cats and veterinarians. How about that!
I’ve already issued a press release giving some of my top suggestions for making your cat’s trip to the veterinarian less frightening. I won’t repeat myself here. I’ll let you go check out the press release.
But just to recap a couple of really important things…take a look at this video. It has some great suggestions for making your cat’s carrier his (or her) friend.
If you already have a veterinarian you and your cat love, that’s great. You’re already one step ahead. If not, the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) has a great list of cat-friendly practices. Any of these practices will welcome you and your cat and help make your cat feel more “at home” when visiting.
Want more information? Take a look at this post from The Cat Hospitals in Ottawa, Ontario. The post features a great list of signs to watch for in your cat. Some of these signs are subtle but can be an indication that something is wrong. You’ll also see a familiar face…mine! But that’s all I’m going to tell you. You have to go to read the post to find out more.
So what are you waiting for? When was your cat’s last veterinary visit? There’s no time like the present if your cat is overdue. And even if you can’t make it to the veterinarian this week, you can still start getting your cat ready for that next trip.
