We often think that we only need to take our cat to the vet when he or she is ill. The fact is that we should get in the habit of taking him for a checkup at least once a year. This is important to your cats well being and longevity.

There is also lots of debate over annual booster shots. If a cat stays indoors, I believe that he shouldn’t need them that often although some veterinarians still recommend it.  While you cat is at the vet, he will perform a physical examination and ask you questions about your cats overall health and whether you’ve noticed any changes.  Potential problems could be detected during your cats visit.

During your visit, your veterinarian will look at & discuss the following:

  • Dental examination
  • Weight
  • Skin & coat, general condition & lumps & bumps
  • Ears & eyes
  • Parasite control
  • Heart
  • Musculoskeletal exam

So don’t neglect getting your cat a checkup.

Remember,your pets count!
