Learn More About Cat Health
We provide resources and methods to maintain cat wellness. Following the kitten series, cats should have an annual checkup, required vaccinations and deworming. Since Rabies is a fatal disease, we advise all cats, both indoor and out, to be up to date on their Rabies vaccination.
There are quality cat foods specifically made to meet the nutritional demands of your cat, ask our staff for the names of quality brands and where to get them. One of the most important ways to maintain your cat’s wellness is through Environmental Enrichment. Cats were born to play, hunt, and move. When cats become too sedentary or are under-stimulated, they often develop negative behaviours.
There are many ways to incorporate play and hunting into your cat’s daily life. This is especially important for indoor cats. The Indoor Pet Initiative for Cat Owners provides a number of excellent resources if you’re unsure how to proceed. As your cat ages, they have special requirements, and should have a minimum of 2 exam/consultations with a veterinarian each year.
