SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— Dr. Jennifer Scarlett confirms the rumors are true; cat guardians aren’t as good as other pet owners when it comes to getting their little loved ones in for regular visits with the veterinarian.
While cats are the most popular pet in America, Dr. Scarlett said they are less likely to make it in to the vet for preventative measures.
“It makes sense if you’ve ever tried to put your cat in a carrier to go to the vet’s office; it’s really stressful,” she said.
But it is important nonetheless. For every calendar year adult cats are aging four years physiologically compared to humans.
