We all know the importance of wellness health checks for humans, but what about for cats? Even though most of our pet cats live indoors, they are still subject to diseases and other medical problems. And because cats are masters of hiding illness, waiting until they are showing signs of sickness may mean increased treatment costs for you and unnecessary suffering for your cat. Cats are prone to diabetes and diseases of the thyroid glands and kidneys. They are also commonly affected by a painful dental disease. The best way to detect the disease early is with a good physical examination performed by your veterinarian. Since cats age so much more quickly than humans, the American Association of Feline Practitioners recommends a physical exam every six months to safeguard your cat’s health.
We know a visit to the veterinary hospital can be stressful, both for you and your cat! We hope these suggestions help make the process a little easier:
If your cat is past due for a physical exam, call your veterinarian today. Although getting her to the veterinarian may be a challenge, the benefits of preventive health care are well worth it.
