Cat myths abound in the U.S. and for many it’s difficult to know what to believe. Fortunately, Pet Health Network is prepared to debunk these rumors that often leave you with the wrong impression about felines.

1. True or false? Cats don’t need to see the veterinarian as often as dogs. 

False, just like dogs the best medicine for cats is prevention. You should also consider that cats are actually much better at hiding symptoms of illness than dogs are. In other words if you don’t have routine blood work done on your cat, you may not be aware of illness until it’s too late. Protect your cats and bring them to the veterinarian often.

If you have any questions or concerns, you should always visit or call your veterinarian -- they are your best resource to ensure the health and well-being of your pets.
