THE FELINE FINE PROJECT
The mission of The Feline Fine Project is to create awareness and educate about the importance of annual and bi-annual wellness checks for your cat. Statistics show that for many reasons cats are 50% less likely to be seen annually by a veterinarian than dogs.
Working together we can move the needle, change the statistics and keep our cats healthy. All of our cats should be “Feline Fine”.
The Feline Fine Project is excited to announce we will be joined by The Cat Doc and Desi & Roo founder, Dr. Lynn Bahr. The presentation will cover not only the importance of annual wellness checks, but how to choose the right veterinarian and tips for making the trip to the vet less daunting. The presentation will be followed by Q&A time so have your questions ready!
