August 22nd is National Bring Your Cat to the Vet Day in the US. While it may seem strange to dedicate an annual holiday to bringing your cat to the vet, it is a great reminder for all cat owners to take your feline friends for an annual checkup. While people often go to the dentist or optician for regular checkups, many pet owners do not bring their pets to the vet until a health concern arises, which increases both the health risks and the bill.
To all pet owners, future pet owners and animal lovers: Take this chance to appreciate your furry friends and touch bases with their health and well-being!
