It’s well-known that cats rule the internet and their owners’ hearts, In fact, there are approximately 2.4 million cats in South Africa.
However, even with so many loving homes, many of these cats aren’t receiving the medical attention they need. The reason is quite simple - cats don’t show pain in an easily observable manner which is why owners need to be far more vigilant of their cat’s health and wellbeing.
In order to improve the healthcare of cats in South Africa, Royal Canin is once again leading the charge for this year’s Take Your Cat to the Vet Day on August 22, 2019.
The Take Your Cat to the Vet Day aims to improve the healthcare of cats across the country by encouraging owners to schedule regular veterinary checkups for their feline companions.
“Cats are far more subtle than dogs in showing discomfort, illness or pain,” explained Dr Michelle Harman, Royal Canin SA veterinarian and technical manager.
