Owning a cat provides companionship, loyalty and affection for people of all ages and is an invaluable addition to families and individuals.
As your vet, we are willing to discuss the many aspects of cat care, including breed-specific information and routine health care such as vaccinations, flea and tick control, desexing and worming.
More and more people are electing to keep their cats indoor only to reduce wondering, fighting, disease, wildlife destruction and tragic accidents (hit by car). It is important to discuss changes in your cats environment with your veterinarian and different diseases prevention techniques between indoor and outdoor cats.
Indoor cats need a place to feel safe and away from high traffick areas - a dark place to hide and a place high in the air to escape (especially from little children). Scratching posts help to reduce furniture destruction and more litter trays than cats help to reduce unwanted innapropraite toiletting behaviours and diseases such as feline cystitis (FLUTD). A good rule of thumb is one tray for each cat plus one extra. Play with your indoor cats to encourage exercise and avoid obesity. It is important not to feed indoor cats ad libitum - indoor cats have far less energy requirements than outdoor cats, and their diet needs to reflect this! Grooming assitance with regular burshing helps prevent hairballs.
Our staff are always keen to discuss routine health care for your current or future pets. For further information about pet care, please phone our helpful staff during business hours.
