Sick or Not Sick?

Kitties deserve regular preventive health care checks to try and prevent disease.

However, when sickness occurs, it can be difficult to recognize because our feline friends are masters at concealing illness. Often cats simply find a place to hide, a natural instinct to protect themselves from predators. It can be difficult to know when they need to be seen by the veterinarian. The following list, provided by the CATalyst Council in the CATegorical Care: An Owner’s Guide to America’s #1 Companion (pdf), are some of the signs which indicate that a visit to Markham Veterinary Clinic is needed.
