Feline Vet Visits

Did you know that 58% of cat owners believe their cat hates visiting the veterinarian and 38% also said they get stressed at the thought of veterinary visits (Bayer HealthCare and the American Association of Feline Practitioners)? During this education session, we will investigate why that is and what makes cats and their parents uneasy about this necessary annual visit. Bidisha will also share insight on the variety of ways we can mitigate the problem and provide tips on how to make vet visits less stressful.
