Although the American health care system pretty much bankrupts anyone who gets sick, don’t let that fate happen to your cat. While you may skip regular checkups because of the cost, make sure your cat sees a vet regularly to monitor its health.

Cats can’t always tell you when they’re feeling ill so regular checkups can be important so your vet can track the cat’s health. By catching health problems early, you can prolong the life of your cat. Then since the American health care system is so poor, you might want to get a checkup from your cat’s vet because it’s probably a lot cheaper.
