What A Handsome Senior

Harry is one very special patient here at Veterinary Associates of Cape Cod. Sure he is cute and sweet, but what really makes him an outstanding cat is that he is over 20 years old!! Harry’s family found him wedged between the top of their garage door and ceiling when he was no more than a year old.

Fortunately he pulled through that without any internal injuries and ended up with a loving family who has been caring for him over the last 19 + years. He presented to our clinic a few weeks ago for a check-up. Other than a cyst on the top of his head, his physical exam was completely normal. Considering his age, we ran senior blood work to check for any underlying problems.

Much to our amazement, Harry’s blood work was the picture of perfection. At this rate, Harry might make the Guiness Book of World Records!
