How to find the right vet for your cat

Not Having a Good Feline-Oriented Veterinarian can be CATastrophic!

Did you know that 70% of veterinarians are dog people?  Up to 75% of their patients are dogs so they see a lot more dog than cats.

Since most cat parents want their cat family members to have thorough checkups annually, you may want to consider finding a cat-only vet clinic since it is usually far less stressful for you and your cat than a dog/cat vet clinic. Also, veterinarians at a feline-only vet clinic have specialized education and training and their clinic is designed to be more comfortable for their cat patients and their owners.

However, if you are not successful in finding a feline specialist somewhat near you, here are some tips to help you choose a vet who might be a possible option:

Just like you take time to find the right doctor for yourself, it is critical that you take time to find the right veterinarian for your cat(s).  Please take your cat in for a thorough exam and bloodwork at least once a year and twice a year for senior cats (9 yrs+).  Most vet clinics offer a special on cleanings, x-rays and dental work during Dental Health Month (February) so make a note to call in early January to ensure your cat(s) get in for their yearly checkup and dental visit.  Your cat’s health and well-being are too important to do otherwise!
