National Cat Day

maple2

It is a well-known fact that cats do not receive veterinary care nearly as much as dogs. In the United States, 86 million cats belong to families and 78 million dogs belong to families. Although cats greatly outnumber dogs, almost twice as many dogs than cats ever visit the vet. Regular preventative care exams are a very important part of  maintaining and lengthening your cat's health and well-being. Some things that will be discussed and assessed during these exams are your cat's nutrition, lifestyle, environmental enrichment, disease and parasite prevention, and behavior. With the information you bring and a thorough physical examination, a health plan will be created that meets the needs of your cat and the family. National Cat Day is Wednesday October 29th. We want to reward you for choosing to bring your cat in for a check-up by sending home a gift bag with every feline exam done on this day. The gifts include one month of flea and heartworm prevention, toys, treats, and feline calming pheromones that can help aid your cat during stressful times. Please contact us to schedule an appointment. We are proud to be a Certified Cat Friendly Practice and provide cats with the best possible care.
