There are 82 million pet cats in the U.S., compared with 72 million dogs,1 making cats the most popular pet. Yet studies show the number of feline veterinary visits is declining steadily each year. For example, a recent industry survey revealed that compared with dogs, almost three times as many cats hadn’t received veterinary care in the past year.2
The disparity may be related to common myths about cat health, such as:
- Cats are naturally healthier and more problem-free than dogs
- Feline health problems come from outside and don’t affect indoor cats
- Cats will display visible signs of illness like dogs do
The truth is, cats need regular veterinary care, including annual exams and vaccinations, just like dogs do. And because they are naturally adept at hiding signs of illness, annual exams are especially important for early diagnosis of health problems.
That’s why Twin Maples Veterinary Hospital is participating in the “Have we seen your cat lately?” national awareness campaign and taking steps to raise awareness about the importance of regular veterinary care for cats. The doctors and Twin Maples Veterinary Hospital have been long term members of the American Association of Feline Practitioners and The American Animal Hospital Association, organizations known for their concern about cat care and important advocates for standards of excellence for feline practitioners. Twin Maples is cat friendly with separate dog and cat waiting rooms and wards, to minimize the stress veterinary visits can cause our feline friends. We can also offer tips on making visits to the hospital less stressful, such as teaching your cat to like his or her carrier and acclimating to car rides and exam.
