Happy February! It’s amazing how quickly January flew by. Did you know February is National Pet Dental Health Month? Yes, even your feline friend needs dental care! The American Veterinary Dental Society estimates 70% of cats have some form of dental disease by the age of three.
Happy New Year! We hope that 2020 will be filled with prosperity, good health, love, and laughter for you and yours. The first of the year brings on many reminders – resolutions, preparing for tax season, and setting up your feline’s annual appointment.
In recent radio jingles, TV commercials, and print ads, you may have started to notice a trend emerging in all of them. Words like “grain-free” and “raw diets” are gaining momentum as popular diets for cats and dogs, and many of our clients have been asking about these as diet options for their feline family members.
VCPR, also known as Veterinarian-Client-Patient Relationship, is a critical component to veterinary medicine. It exists when we know your pet well enough to be able to diagnose and treat any condition your pet may develop. It requires us to keep written record of your pet’s medical care, allows us to advise you on the risks and benefits of treatment options, oversee the treatment and care of your pet, and more. It is essentially the bedrock of providing quality care for every patient.
Sharing your home with a cat means cleaning litter, brushing out long coats, and the occasional nail trim. Helping your cat keep their nails trimmed and tidy means less wear and tear on furniture, accidental scratches, and longer lasting toys.
However, not all cats appreciate a manicure. If your cat is one of those that detest it, here are helpful tips that can help you trim their nails safely and quickly.
“My cat is an indoor-only cat, so I don’t need to worry about ticks.”
While we would all like to think that an indoor-only cat isn’t susceptible to ticks, the fact is that just like other creatures, cats can also pick up ticks.
Springtime showers bring springtime flowers, and with Easter right around the corner, lilies will be making their way into homes.
Most Species of Lily Should be Avoided
Lilies, specifically all species of Lilium (true lily), including Easter lily, Tiger lily, Asiatic lily, and others, as well as Hemerocallis (day lily) are toxic and potentially life-threatening to cats. Small amounts from these plants, like 1-2 petals or leaves, water from the vase, and even pollen groomed off the fur, can result in severe, acute kidney failure and death
As a cat owner, there’s nothing better than curling up on the couch with your furry feline friend after a long day. What isn’t always fun is the pile of fur left on your clothes, blankets, cushions – it can get everywhere!
While you’ll never be able to stop your cat from shedding hair fully, there are a few things you can do to help both them and you coexist with the cat shed.
