Facts About Cat Health

When you own a pet you want to make sure you get all the health and nutrition facts straight, in order to raise and share your life with a healthy and happy furry companion. This is nothing short of what a parent would do for their child. Many pet owners treat their pets like their children, spoiling them and pandering to their every need. Over indulgence isn't always helpful, but a good knowledge of what your cat needs definitely is.

Cats and kittens

Cat health is very different from dog health and so your cat will have unique as well as breed related needs as far as healthcare goes. Cats are susceptible to feline diseases such as feline leukaemia, cat flu and various other health issues. The best option for owners of outdoor cats is to take the cat for regular veterinary check ups. You should also keep your kitty up to date with their vaccinations and boosters.

Be wary of what food you are offering. Cats and chocolate don’t go well together and in fact chocolate can be very toxic to cats (and dogs).

You should also be aware that your cat may be lactose intolerant. You should keep an eye on their reaction to any dairy products, if you see diarrhoea, no more milk or dairy! Hill’s provide complete cat diets which are formulated to provide exactly what your feline needs and help maintain a happy and healthy lifestyle for your cat.
