Keep your cat or kitten happy, healthy and safe.

Veterinary Care

Your cat will require annual visits to the veterinarian for a general health checks, and to ensure his vaccinations and boosters are kept up to date.

You’ll also need to treat your cat at home regularly for fleas and worms. You cannot use dog flea products on cats or kittens, so be sure to read the label to confirm that it is safe for cats and that you are using it correctly.

It’s also important to give your cat something to clean his teeth. You can do this by feeding him dental care biscuits or a raw chicken wing each week.

Remember, any changes in behaviour, defecation, drinking, eating, urination, or weight loss or gain should be checked out with a visit to the veterinarian. Today, there are many treatments available for a wide range of problems, such as arthritis and diabetes.

Some commonly found plants are toxic to cats, such as lilies. It is a good idea to remove these plants from your garden or house, or at least take precautions to prevent your cat from accessing them.
