AAFP, AAHA, Team Up on Cat Wellness Guidelines

According to the American Veterinary Medical Association’s 2007 U.S. Pet Ownership and Demographics Sourcebook, more cats over dogs are owned as pets, however cats receive significantly less veterinary care.  Studies have shown there is an inability to recognize signs of illness or injury by cat owners and that an underlying concern of stress to the cat and its owner are deterrents to veterinary visits.  The American Association of Feline Practitioners and the American Animal Hospital Association have teamed up in an effort to promote appropriate wellness care for cats by setting Cat Wellness Guidelines.  The guidelines are available at CatVets.com and AAHAnet.org
