Why is it important to bring your cat to the veterinarian?

Cats need regular veterinary visits in order to live longer, happier, and healthier lives. Eighty-three percent of cats are taken to the veterinarian in the first year of ownership, yet over half of them don’t return. The American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) is helping in the education process with the launch of its new 3-part video series about its Cat Friendly Practice (CFP) program. For information on caring for your cats, visit catfriendly.com.

This video discusses what veterinarians do during a yearly veterinary checkup. During physical examinations, veterinarians can often detect conditions that may affect your cat’s health long before they become significant so they can be managed or cured before they become painful or more costly. CFPs provide many beneficial services beyond just treating a cat when they are sick or for emergency visits.

Providing good health care, especially preventive health care, can allow your cats to have longer, more comfortable lives. However, this cannot happen unless they see the veterinarian for needed care. Many cats dislike going to the veterinarian, and that starts with the difficulty of getting the cat into the carrier. If we can make this step easier, the entire veterinary visit is usually less stressful.
