Have We Seen Your Cat Lately?
There are 82 million pet cats in the United States, compared with 72 million dogs, making cats the most popular pet. Yet studies show the number of feline veterinary visits is declining steadily each year. Armadale Animal Hospital wants to see your cat more often!
Sometimes it’s difficult to identify when your cat’s not feeling well. Cats are often “silent sufferers” who don’t show signs of illness until the disease is quite advanced. Yearly examinations for adult cats and twice yearly examinations for senior cats are important for early diagnosis of health problems. Remember, one year in the life of a human approximates 7 years in the life of a cat. Your cat is aging more rapidly than you think.
Here are some signs of illness in cats which can often be subtle but significant:
- Inappropriate urination or defecation
- Changes in social interaction
- Changes in activity
- Changes in sleeping habits
- Changes in food and water consumption
- Unexplained weight loss or gain
- Changes in grooming
- Bad breath
Armadale Animal Hospital encourages all cat owners to schedule a wellness examination so that we can address your cat’s disease risk and prevention.
