Obesity in cats can create health issues such as respiratory problems, diabetes, arthritis, and heart disease. Did you know that just a pound or two may make a difference in your cat's health? It can, so it is important for you to watch your cat's diet and make sure he or she gets plenty of exercise. Keep in mind that an average-size cat should weigh between 8 and 10 pounds.
Kittens should be fed a high-quality kitten food. Purina ProPlan, Purina ONE, Wellness, EVO, and California Natural are brands we recommended. Failure to feed a high-quality diet could result in urinary problems and obesity. Once kittens reach 8–10 months of age, they should be gradually changed to a high-quality cat food.
When you buy cat food, look for brands that are labeled "AAFCO approved and tested." Foods so labeled have been balanced following the National Research Council's guidelines and most have been proven in testing. The first ingredient should always be meat (chicken, turkey, lamb, etc.) and not corn, corn meal, or animal by-products.
Do not feed your cat people food. Table scraps can really help your cat pack on the pounds in no time! Also, remember that snacks and treats are for "special" times and are not to be free fed. Instead of giving a snack, treat your cat to lots of love and attention.
When you love what you do...you work from your heart. Pet Care Vetinary Hosiptal is a great place to bring your family pet. If anyone knows what Person Centered is, they work from a pet-centered approach. I love it! From the care of our beloved rabbit who has now passed to our Savannah Cat-Ani, we would not have chosen another place.
I have been bringing my guinea pigs and rabbits to Pet Care for about 10 years. Dr's Fisher and Wallace have given them excellent care. They have a caring, friendly manner towards both their patients and their owners As doctors, I trust their diagnoses and opinions and always found them to be correct. The office staff and veterinarian staff are warm and friendly as well. I love going there and highly recommend them.
I love this place. Our lab had a salivary mucocele that needed surgery about two weeks ago. They were some warm and comforting as we had tons of questions before the surgery. They were more than happy to answer and gave our pup so much love. They genuinely care about each animal they see. Every time I walk in they are warm and welcoming and I highly recommend this vet!! Thank you for everything!
I always have a great experience at Pet Care. All who work there are very kind and truly care for your pet. I never have to wait long with my rabbit, BB. I am so glad my friend Michelle recommended them.
I cannot say enough good things about Pet Care Veterinary Hospital! Our 3 dogs (Buddy, Yo-Yo, and Ethel) usually see Dr. Hulls or Dr. Piper.. both are very honest, compassionate, and talented vets and both are amazing with our crazy crew! Everyone from the front desk to the techs to the vets are always friendly and helpful. I have no doubt our furbabies are in great hands whenever they are at Pet Care Veterinary Hospital!
