Bernadine Cruz, DVM posted:
Though more cats share our homes and beds than dogs, sadly they receive substantially less veterinary care. This may be due to the fact that cats seem to hide their signs of illness to effectively or the fact that they hate to go for car rides and cat owners hate to hear their cats fuss on the way to the clinic.

All pets should see their primary care veterinarian at least twice yearly for a wellness examination, more often if there is a problem. But how do you know if your cat is ill or just enjoying a lazy day of sleeping in a sun beam? CatVets.com is an excellent source of information on all cat health matters.

When in doubt if your cat is just being a cat or if there could be a medical issue that needs attention, call your veterinarian first.

I hope you like this site. I personally find it very useful.

Paws up....
