How Old is Your Kitty?


Cats usually live longer than most dogs and it is not unusual for them to live until 20 or beyond. How long an individual cat will live depends on many factors such as genetics, whether kept indoors or not, type of diet and of course, the appropriate veterinary care she receives.

As you can see, an eight year old cat is well into her 'fifties.' Since one year for a cat is equivalent to approximately four human years, many changes take place in what for us, is a fairly short period of time.


Our Health Wellness Packages include comprehensive bloodwork, a blood pressure and urinalysis. This allows the doctors to to obtain baseline information, which is beneficial as your cat ages. Also, many health problems that are not readily detected in other ways may be caught early-on and appropriate steps can be taken to ensure continued well-being and a longer life for your cat.
