Take Your Cat for Its Annual Vet Visit

White and gray cat.

Cats benefit from annual veterinarian visits, just like dogs do. Your vet can recommend preventive measures to keep your cat healthy, such as:

– Vaccines: If an indoor cat starts spending time outside, your vet may recommend a vaccine for feline leukemia, which is a danger for cats that may come into contact with other cats.

– Heartworm preventive: All cats should receive a monthly preventive. One bite from a mosquito that has snuck indoors is all it takes to cause heartworm.

– Dental care: Cats can get plaque build-up, causing gum disease and tooth decay. Your vet can provide dental cleanings.
