A sick or injured pet can make you lose sleep. Questions like, “Is it normal for my cat to sneeze so often?”, “Should he be limping like that?”, and “He is not going to keep biting his tail, right?” will come up again, and again. Why torture yourself? Did you know, in 2010 alone, cat and dog owners spent over 13 billion dollars at the vet? Be realistic about when it is time to go, and do not let symptoms get even worse.
Vets can make caring for a cat or dog easier, and a good deal less stressful. Pet owners do not have to worry about taking their pets into a clinic. The American Veterinary Medical Association reports that up to 75 percent of vets own private practices. That means they are real people, without ulterior motives, who care about your pet just as much as you do. These same vets treat cats, dogs, and more every single day, and bring a great deal of experience to the table.
Moreover, veterinarians choose an area of expertise, like feline health care or feline dental care. Their training and specialization requires a minimum of a two year internship, working directly side by side with experts to learn all there is to know about the care of cats. Zoos require specially trained vets to care for their lions, tigers, and bigger cats, so why not expect the same from yours?
The good news is, you can. Relax. Know that, whether you visit a local clinic or a feline veterinary hospital, that person is going to know all there is to know about caring for a cat. To learn more, read this.
