About Cat Healthy

Cat Healthy is a cause marketing initiative with a goal of helping cats lead healthier, happier lives. Supported by every practicing feline specialist in Canada, we’re an internationally recognized leader in species centric care.

Our Mission

“Improving the life of cats while building a stronger bond between them and their people”

Cat Healthy helps cats get improved preventive healthcare. Cat Healthy provides Canadian veterinary professionals, cat shelters, pet stores, breeders and cat owners with health recommendations, tips, tools and tactics to help cats lead longer and happier lives.

Our emphasis is on preventive healthcare. To lower long-term healthcare costs and promote healthier cats, we encourage cat owners to seek more frequent care from veterinary professionals. We provide ways to improve the veterinary experience for cats and cat owners – ultimately encouraging cat visits and the chance to identify problems before they become serious.

The Cat Healthy Preventive Healthcare Protocols are the centerpiece of our knowledge base. The protocols offer practical recommendations to support a higher standard of care for cats and are intended to be used by veterinary professionals, pet owners and any group that cares for cats.

We encourage veterinary professionals, policymakers, business owners, and pet owners to make use of our resources, or to support us by becoming a sponsor.

Our Specialists

Specialists dedicated to the betterment of cats

Cat Healthy is the only program in Canada created by Canada’s six local board-certified feline veterinary specialists. This level of certification requires a degree in veterinary medicine, logging at least six years of full-time practice with cats, and passing several rigorous, comprehensive exams. Today, fewer than 100 veterinarians in the world, and only six in Canada, have achieved this distinction.
