Did you know that, on average, veterinary clinics see about five dogs for every one cat? With numbers like those, you would expect that there are about five times more pet dogs than pet cats, but in reality, there are approximately four and a half million more pet cats in the US than pet dogs.

On August 22nd, we will be celebrating National Take your Cat to the Vet Day and reminding cat owners that cat health and regular vet visits for Fluffy are just as essential to overall well-being and health as they are for Fido.
Approximately 50% of pets show signs of anxiety during fireworks, and an untold number feel the fear without displaying any outward behaviors.

Our pets experience the world through what they see, hear, smell, and feel.
