SEPTEMBER:  HAPPY HEALTHY CAT MONTH

First, we want to make sure your cat (indoor and outdoor) is healthy and happy. You need to visit your vet to make sure she/he is up to date on all vaccines. Here we usually do the feline distemper, leukemia, and rabies. Other vets may have others. You want to get them annual check ups to make sure everything is healthy. Make sure you get their fecal checked each year to rule out any internal parasites. Vets also recommend having them protected against fleas and ticks all year round for all cats inside and outside. People will state that "my cat does not go outside, they do not need any protection". This is untrue! We as humans can bring in fleas and ticks on ourselves. These critters can sneak inside very fast. The adult female fleas in particular like to come inside during the winter and hang out. They can have thousands of eggs and can go around 3 months without a blood meal. So, keep your cats protected all year round. Also, blood work can be important as a cat gets older. They can have higher chances to certain illnesses like diabetes, hyperthyroidism, kidney or urinary diseases, and etc. So, once they get into the senior age, 7 years or older, you want to do a yearly check up with their blood work. We as owners have the responsibility to keep our pets safe, healthy, and happy. So, make sure you feed them properly and do not over feed. Being obese can be harmful.
