Happy Cat Month in September from Your Charlotte Veterinarian

Cats are often stereotyped as aloof and self-reliant, but just like dogs, our feline friends need lots of love, attention, exercise and regular medical care. That's why CATalyst Council, a dedicated group of veterinarians, educators, nonprofits, welfare organizations, and industry experts, created Happy Cat Month. The month-long event focuses on feline wellness and how to achieve it. Please join us and celebrate Happy Cat Month in September with your Charlotte Veterinarian, Compassionate Care Veterinary Hospital of Charlotte.

Importance of Cat Month

Dogs are called “man's best friend,” but men and women in the United States actually own more cats than dogs. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, Americans own 81.7 million cats compared to 72 million dogs; however, the number of cats in shelters is greater than dogs, and veterinarian visits are fewer for felines. This is a real problem that requires awareness and action to address. Additionally, cats often do not receive the proper diet, exercise, and stimulation they require. This leads to weight problems and a number of preventable medical conditions.

Healthy Habits for Happy Cats

Celebrate Happy Cat Month in September with healthy habits for happy cats. Make daily exercise a priority. Whether your kitty loves jingling balls or fishing pole toys, engage your cat with different stimulating activities and provide fun places around the house for your cat to hide and climb. Feed your cat a high-quality diet designed for his age, weight and health needs. Our Charlotte veterinarian can recommend a diet and feeding schedule. Schedule a wellness exam for a nose-to-tail check. We recommend a senior blood panel for older kitties as many conditions that develop in later years only show symptoms once the problem has progressed. And don't forget those chompers! Make brushing at home a regular habit, and schedule a thorough dental cleaning at our office to prevent dental disease.

I have used Dr Johnson ever since she opened this office and my pets love her to death. She is very caring and does not rush you and always answers your questions in layman's terms. She loves her work along with her associates.
