Routine preventive care is imperative for senior cats to prevent or delay conditions that older animals are more prone including arthritis, organ failure, cancers, and diseases of the kidney, heart, and liver. We strongly recommend biannual wellness visits to make sure that all of your cat’s healthcare needs are being met.
