August 22: Scaredy Cat's Day

Did you know that only 50% of cats receive regular veterinary care, compared to 80% of dogs?

Cats deserve vet care too, but we know that carrier challenges and stressful visits in the past can discourage owners from bringing them in for regular check-ups.

If this describes your cat, Scaredy Cats Day is for you!

  • Cat appointments only, to reduce stress for cats that are scared of dogs
  • Advice on low-stress techniques to get cats in carriers + large-opening carriers available to borrow
  • Inexpensive and gentle pre-appointment calming medication available
  • Calming cat pheromones used throughout the clinic
  • Fear-free cat handling techniques used during exams

Limited appointments available, so call, email, or request your cat’s appointment online now!

Why do regular exams matter?

Cats are excellent at hiding signs of pain and illness, which means that by the time they look unwell their health problems can be quite advanced, and they may have been in discomfort for some time.

Regular physical exams can help identify health issues early, when they are easier (and cheaper) to treat:

  • Kidney and thyroid disease are common in cats over 12, but if caught early the progression can be slowed
  • Dental issues are one of the most common and painful conditions affecting cats, and can be identified by your vet long before symptoms are seen at home
  • Your vet can help you address behaviour problems before they become unmanageable

Take advantage of Scaredy Cats Day and book your cat’s appointment now!

P.S. If you aren’t available on Wednesday, August 22nd, we can offer your cat a fear-free visit on other days too – just ask when you call to book, and we would be happy to help!

Give us a call at 416-537-9677 if you have any questions, and feel free to share!
