Here are some recommendations for your pets:

Recommendations for Cat Owners

1. An annual exam is essential. Remember, ...one year to us is an average of 5 years to your cat. That's a long time to go without a thorough physical exam!

2. Keep vaccinations current. A vaccination program should be individualized to meet the needs of your pet.

3. Clip nails as needed to prevent overgrowth. Ask us about proper nail trimming.

4. Keep plenty of fresh water available and monitor its consumption.

5. Keep pets from preventing each other from free access to food and water.

6. Treat and prevent parasites, including fleas, ticks, intestinal worms and heartworm on a regular basis.

7. Different life stages and health conditions often require special diets. We can help you choose an appropriate diet to meet your pet's individual needs.

8. Brush frequently to keep hair coat from matting. Many cats do not groom themselves well.

9. Monitor urine output by measuring the amount of wet litter in the litter box.

10. Indoor cats are happy,.... and more importantly, safe, cats.

11. Weigh your cat on the same scale and record results at least every 60 days. Both weight loss and weight gain are noteworthy. Obesity is a very serious condition that is becoming more and more common in our feline population.

12. Clean teeth are essential to continued good health. Professional cleanings at your veterinarian may be required every 1 to 2 years.
