Unfortunately, cats cannot tell us where it hurts, so we must rely on ourselves to be aware of our cat`s physical appearance and behavior that may indicate a health problem.
There are a lot of health risks to our pets in and around our homes. Simply being aware of these risks dramatically reduces your pet`s chances of becoming ill.
The one best piece of advice we can offer for cats is to keep them inside at all times. This will drastically decrease the amount of health threats your pet is exposed to, not to mention decreased risk of injury or death from other outdoor threats such as autos and cruel people.
Also, did you know that the EPA didn`t begin testing pet products for safety until 1996? This means there are still flea and tick products that have made it onto shelves that could be harmful to pets. Please consult your veterinarian before purchasing over-the-counter flea and tick products.
