It may be surprising, but there are millions more owned cats than owned dogs in the United States. Dogs, however, have a much better attendance rate at the vet than cats do. While you and your cat may find the experience of getting to the vet to be a stressful one, it’s still very important to get your cat to a veterinary clinic regularly.
Cats are special in many ways, and this includes having their own unique medical needs. At Denton Veterinary Center in Denton, Texas, we work hard to make our clinic very comfortable and stress free for both you and your cat. To start, our waiting room is built to separate cats and dogs, so you can wait in peace. We prioritize getting you and your cat into an examination room quickly so that you don’t have to wait long and you can be comfortable. Additionally, we have separate boarding facilities for cats and dogs.
Regular visits to the veterinarian are very important for any animal. Finding health issues early can give your pet a longer and healthier life and will usually lower treatment costs. Our preventative care visits give our veterinarians an important baseline understanding of your cat’s regular health and behavior. This allows us to track their health and let’s us detect the onset of diseases like diabetes, hyperthyroidism and kidney disease in early stages. Also, bringing your cat to the veterinarian as a kitten can build a good foundation to help them feel more comfortable and calm for future visits.
Here at Denton Veterinary Center, we stay up to date with the latest in cat medicine and surgery techniques. Dr. Katrina Lindsay is a proud member of the American Association of Feline Practitioners and has a special interest in cat medicine.
