National Take Your Cat
to the Vet Day
This day has been created to remind cat owners about the importance of the regular vet checks for their feline friends.
A staggering statistic tells us that less than half of home cats see their vet. Like pups, kitties call for an expert to see them regularly to continue living in good health.

As a take-away from this awareness campaign for the importance of vet care, I would like to leave you wth these top three Value Points for an aging cat.
Being a parent to three Cornish Rexes, two of which are rescues, I realize how the life of my beloved kitties could be in danger. Small things like scratches, obsessive licking or losing interest in self-grooming could be signs in a more serious health condition in your pet. Vet visits are our first step to implement the preventive care for our pets. An veterinarian can spot things that can be easily missed by us.
Here are Top 3 Tips to Care for An Aging Cat that Can Make A BIG Difference
#1 Schedule Regular Visits With Your Veterinarian
With science and pet knowledge moving forward and making new discoveries, our pets receive a higher quality lifestyle. A cat is considered to be a Senior when it reaches 11-14 year mark. However, I have seen different stats when a senior title was moved to 7-10-year-old feline.
The doctor’s eye is especially needed to notice any changes in your cat’s behavior and well-being.
#2 Feed Your Cat a Diet with Adequate Protein Level
Did you know a fact that cats require a higher protein level than dogs? This is true. Protein intake becomes especially important in the cat’s senior years.
Please, please do not think that a cat can follow any vegetarian diet! Cats are carnivores! Feed them MEAT! The nutrient like taurine and arachidonic acid can be obtained only from meat sources.
#3 Consider fortifying your Senior Cat’s Diet with Essential Amino Acids – DHA & EPA
Cats benefit greatly from Omega-3s. Their aging brain, eyes, heart will benefit from the food rich in Omega3.
Older cats can suffer from arthritis and joint ailments. The Omega-3 supplements have shown to be effective in making the pet feeling better.
Taking a small step every day towards your cat’s health will make a difference in her well-being. Enjoy your CAT and remember to share its pictures and cat tips with hashtag #Cat2VetDay on your social media – Twitter, Instagram, Facebook.
