Cat Health: A Constant Concern For Every Cat Owner
Cats may seem tough. Still, cat health should be a constant concern for cat owners. Be alert, and you can avoid a lot of trouble.
Although many felines get old without noticeable serious diseases, cats are not made of steel and iron. Worms, cat fleas, feline acne, other skin problems, infections and cat illnesses always lure around the corner. And there are also illnesses that are more common in kittens.
There is a lot you can do to prevent diseases. But even if you follow all cat health tips you can think of, a cat can still get ill.
It is not difficult to recognize if your cat is ill, if you know your cat's habits. By nature, cats are alert and attentive animals. Anything that departs from this, for example diarrhea
, is a warning sign. Here's a list of common symptoms of illnesses in cats
If your cat stops eating, it might be a symptom of a cat disease.
Don't overreact. See if there are possible other reasons why your pet lost appetite. Cats eat less when it's hot outside. Maybe your kitty has a hairball. And sometimes cats simply have enough of a certain food brand.
Other red flags are constipation or too much - or too less - drinking. Cats may drink less when they are ill or, depending on the disease, more than normal.
Here are important tips that keep your cat healthy.
If your cat has fever or suffers from pain, do NOT give hem aspirins or similar pain killers. They can be deadly for cats, even in a small dose.
Consult your vet if your cat is clearly ill or if it feels uncomfortable.
Only a diagnosis made by a professional gives certainty. The nature of the illness determines what kind of treatment will follow.
Tell the vet if your cat is pregnant.
Medication during cat pregnancy may damage the kittens. It is always wise to have your cat checked by the vet before and during pregnancy. The ebook How To Take Care Of Your Pregnant Cat tells you all about the health aspects of cat pregnancy.
Maybe you don't want to expose your little kitty to regular drugs. Using some natural supplements to improve your cat's immune system won't harm your kitty.
Natural health care for cats can be very effective, but only if you do it safely.
Having the right information is therefore essential. Do not play around with your cat's health!
