Our pets are part of the family. Regardless of your cat’s age, you want to make sure your beloved kitty gets the best care possible. Cats require different types of care at different life stages. At Alexander Animal Hospital, we understand the importance of your cat getting the best care possible. Here is an overview of some of the healthcare services your cat may need throughout their lifetime.
Is Your Cat Getting Sick?
It can be difficult to tell when something is bothering your cat. It is instinctual for cats to avoid showing anything that could be perceived as a weakness, as this would make them easy targets in the wild. Even though your home is not a jungle, those protective instincts don’t just go away. Cats typically have a tendency to hide when they are not feeling well. If you suspect something is bothering your cat, make an appointment with your vet.
Checkups and Preventative Care
You have an annual well visit with your general practitioner, and your cat needs to have an annual visit with your vet. For some cats, these well visits may be necessary more than once a year. Cats age much faster than humans, so they need to be seen often to make sure everything is okay.
Health and Behavior
You know your feline friends better than anyone; after all, you do live with them. One of the first indicators of something bothering them is almost always their behavior. Pay attention to how they are acting. Cats thrive on routine and are remarkably adept at telling time. If your cat isn’t following his or her normal routine or is acting strangely in some other way, it may be time to schedule an appointment.
