In the United States, people will often skip their own health care to make sure their cat gets proper health care. Yet you may wonder how often should you take your cat to see the vet?

Another way to ask this question is how many times a year do you want to deal with a struggling, clawing cat to stuff it in a carrier and bring it to the vet? As a general rule, take your cat to the vet once a year, which is probably more often than most American see their own doctor. That just proves health care is more important for cats than for humans, which is the way cats say it should be because who’s more important after all, you or your cat?
