Looking for general cat care tips, or just to brush up on what you already know? You’ve landed in the right place to help your feline friends live their nine lives to the fullest.
Cat Healthy Protocols are a set of guidelines developed by Canada’s feline specialist veterinarians. These protocols set a standard of care for cats and are used by veterinarians around the world. We make the protocols available to cat parents to help you understand what happens during your cat’s visits to the clinic.
80% of owners assume their cats are not only self-sufficient, but in excellent health.
And, 33% of owners only take their pet to the veterinarian if it’s sick. This is unfortunate, because regular care can help prevent many health problems from happening in the first place. Plus, other health conditions can be caught early, when they may be easier and less expensive to treat, while offering reduced suffering for your cat.
Regular dental care can keep your cat’s mouth healthy and pain free, while preventing inflammation in other parts of their bodies.
Even indoor-only cats can be at risk for dangerous disease. Regular vaccinations can help keep them protected.
Your veterinarian can help with concerns about litter box use and management, along with house soiling, scratching and other problems.
A clinical approach to parasite prevention includes recognizing geographic, seasonal and lifestyle factors and is recommended for all cats.
Diet, weight, body condition score and muscle condition all play into your cat’s overall health. Staying on top of their weight can pay dividends later in life.
