How Often Should Young Cats Have Vet Visits?
I have a 17-1/2 year old cat that I take to the vet every six months for his senior-cat exam without fail. However, I also have two young cats, about 1-1/2 years old. All are strictly indoor cats. I received an email from my vet that the two young ones are due for an annual exam. But I don't know what these exams would be for, as my young cats are, well, young, and don't have anything wrong with them. My vet does not believe in annual shots, and said my cats are not scheduled for FVRCP booster until 2011. So is there any reason to go for an annual exam now for these two young cats? I am financially strapped due to the economy, and would prefer not to spend the money, but of course, if it means the health of my cats, I will. But I am not sure I am seeing a justification. Any input from you guys would be appreciated.
