Cats are unique creatures. Every cat owner can attest to their aloof yet loving personalities. They can seem like such homebodies, that it’s tempting to never take them out. There is one place your cat should go regularly, though, and that’s to the veterinarian.
Sure, your cat might not want to leave the house, let alone go to the vet, but it’s important for a number of reasons. Here’s why.
Build a Relationship with Your Vet
As a cat owner, you know it takes time to earn a cat’s love and trust. While a trip to the vet might not seem like the most loving experience to your cat, it is an opportunity to develop a positive relationship. Both you and your cat can get to know your vet better, and you vet can get to know you better, too.
Document Your Cat’s Health History
Regular wellness checks help establish your pet’s health history. This is important for anticipating future health issues, and for understanding how to keep your cat as healthy as possible in the future.
Get Peace of Mind
Regular wellness checks for your cat are also good for you. You can find out if your cat has any health issues and learn what to do about them. If your cat has a clean bill of health, you can rest easy knowing that’s the case.
Detect Issues Early
The main reason for regular wellness visits for your cat is to detect health issues early on. Many health conditions are most effectively treated when caught early. By visiting your veterinarian regularly, you increase your odds of detecting health conditions before they progress too far.
