Cats are wonderful pets; in fact, over 25% of US households share their home with a feline companion, according to the AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Association). They’re cute, cuddly, comical, and provide delightful companionship! But there are some things you will want to keep in mind to keep your cat's health in tip-top shape. Since August 22 is National Bring Your Cat to the Vet Day, we're sharing 5 habits that positively impact the health of your cat!
New Puppy or Kitten?
Congratulations on the newest addition to your family! We know that adding a new puppy or kitten to your household is an exciting time, but it can also be overwhelming. Don’t worry, we’re here to walk with you through this journey! Your new pet should start his or her veterinary visits at around 8 weeks of age. During this first appointment, the doctor can ask any questions that you have, give you advice on training and any behavioral issues, get your pet started on a vaccination schedule that will protect him/her from potentially deadly diseases, and run a stool sample to check for any intestinal parasites which can be passed from the mother to your bundle of joy.
