In my 10 years of practice in veterinary medicine, I have seen it all. From obesity to dental disease, animals can have severe health problems if not addressed and treated properly. While all animals may have health-related problems, I have seen these issues arise more frequently in cats. Cat veterinarian visits have decreased by 30 percent since 2001, and only one cat in every five dogs visits the veterinarian within a year. These statistics are alarming and can be attributed to a variety of reasons.
