National Cat Health Month
January 31st, 2018
With February designated as National Cat Health Month, it’s a perfect time for pet owners to focus on the health of their feline friends. Below are some tips to ensure your furry friend stays in tip-top shape.
Schedule Your Cat’s Annual Checkup
There are many ways to celebrate your love, and one way to show your kitty companion how much you care is by scheduling a visit to your vet to mark their special day. As professionals in the feline only care field, we, at All About Cats Veterinary Hospital, understand how important your furry friend is in your life. The yearly checkup will allow us to catch any potential issues early, ensuring your pet stays in the best of health.
Keep Your Kitty’s Vaccinations Up-to-Date
During the annual exam, we will review any necessary vaccinations to prevent your cat from contracting serious illnesses if exposed to other animals. Even indoor cats need the protection against disease.
Spay or Neuter Your Cat
If you haven’t already done so, now’s a good time to spay or neuter your cat. Along with ensuring population control, you will help prevent many potential illnesses or conditions related to the reproductive organs, and will also eliminate many unwanted behaviors.
Keep Your Cat’s Teeth Healthy
Your kitty’s regular teeth cleanings and exams are an essential component of their overall health. If not cared for, your cat may end up losing teeth, which can interfere with eating. Their teeth may also develop infections that can lead to many different health issues.
Feed Your Pet a High-Quality Diet
To stay healthy, your cat needs a high-quality complete and balanced diet specifically formulated for felines. Make sure the food meets the nutritional requirements of your furry friend’s age and lifestyle.
Keep Your Kitty Active
Keep your cat active to avoid obesity which can lead to many health issues including diabetes. Cats love to play, and it’s an enjoyable way to bond with your furry friend. An interactive feeder, engaging toys, or even a feline companion will keep your cat moving.
Pay Attention to the Litterbox
One of the first places to look for early signs of illness is the litterbox. Look out for any changes in your cat’s litter habits. If you notice anything out of the ordinary, make sure to schedule a visit to our office as soon as possible.
Celebrate Your Furry Friends
Now that you’ve taken care of each aspect of your cat’s health, make sure you spend time cuddling and bonding. It is a myth that cats are solitary animals who do not enjoy interacting with humans. Cats crave attention and snuggles. Not only will your kitty thrive, but you will also relax and enjoy a love like no other!
