August 22 is National Take Your Cat to the Vet Day! This holiday was created to raise awareness about feline-owner veterinary relations. Although cats outnumber dogs in national pet statistics, they are woefully underrepresented in yearly veterinary visits. Cat owners generally limit veterinary visits to emergencies or obvious illness. It is important to remember that cats, like dogs and people, need their annual checkup to keep tabs on their overall health and wellbeing. This holiday is a reminder to schedule your annual appointment, keeping your cat happy and healthy for years to come.
