Arlene Kim, a veterinarian with Johns Creek Veterinary Clinic in north Atlanta, speaks below about how to keep your little buddy living long and strong in Atlanta.

Why not just skip the trying annual visit. “Don’t,” said Kim. “It’s imperative to have a vet examine your cat at least once a year because we can uncover illnesses before they become serious.” Veterinarians are trained to detect subtle sicknesses in cats. They will listen to your cat’s heart to detect murmurs. Increased lung sounds may indicate early illness. Eyes, ears and teeth should be checked for diseases and defects. “It’s also important to keep vaccinations up to date,” said Kim.
