At St. Francis Animal Hospital, we believe wellness check-ups are imperative to the health and happiness of your cat. The AVMA president, Dr. Douglas G. Aspros, said, “the human-animal bond is stronger than ever, but we are very concerned that pets may not be getting the preventive health care they need”.

• Ensuring your cat is parasite-free.
• Preventative care is better than reactive care.
