Feline Medicine and Blood Donors

Cats are not small dogs.

Cats are fast becoming the most popular pet in America, with 90 million owned cats.

There are now more cats than dogs in the U.S., and their owners spend over $6 billion a year on veterinary care. (Statistics from APPMA 2007-8 pet ownership survey)

Because cats are an entirely different species than their canine counterparts, they require specialized knowledge of their specific health concerns.

Cats have their own behavioral and nutritional needs, vaccination protocols, diseases they are prone to, and general health issues, such as obesity.A veterinarian armed with full knowledge of feline-specific medicine can help you keep your cat at its best.
