“My cat is an indoor cat, do I really need to bring her in for a checkup every year?”

Just Cats clients ask this every day, and the answer is YES! Regular visits to your veterinarian are crucial for monitoring your cat's health. It's how your cat gets necessary screenings, vaccinations and treatments. Routine checkups are one way that a veterinarian can identify a potential problem before it becomes serious and expensive.

We love that cats have a strong survival instinct; they’re built to hide illnesses and injuries so that they don’t appear weak or vulnerable to predators. But, that also means that they hide their symptoms from us – their loving caretakers. We can’t ask them how they’re feeling or if anything is wrong, so by the time they begin to exhibit symptoms, it could be too late to effectively treat a problem. An annual screening helps us to catch and diagnose these illnesses early so that we can ensure that your beloved feline companion has the best possible care and quality of life.

Just like you might get a routine blood or urine test when you visit the doctor, your cat requires these tests, too. Having all of the data from blood or urine testing and blood pressure allows us to see the full picture of your cat’s health, and this preventive step helps to diagnose illnesses early. Early diagnosis means a higher likelihood of successful treatment, it’s less costly, and it will help your cat to live a longer and healthier life.

We want the same thing you do… to make sure that your cat is living her best life! A healthy cat is a happy cat, and that’s what we love to see. Let’s work together to ensure that your cat is happy and healthy – visit us at Just Cats at least once a year!
