What can you do this National Cat Health Month

In 2018 the PDSA found there were 11.1 million pet cats in the UK, with only 81% of these cats being registered with a vet.

With this month being National Cat Health Month, it serves as a healthy reminder to book an appointment at your local vet practice to check your cat’s health.

Cats are incredibly important in our lives, so it is only fair we keep them as happy and healthy as possible. One way of doing this could be to see if your local vet provides a Pet Health Plan that will provide you with all the necessary preventative treatment that your cat needs. Your vet will also happily answer any questions you may have about our cat’s health.

You should know what to do when your cat is under the weather, and the sooner your cat is looked after and treated, the sooner they are back to full health, exploring the garden and running around the house.

If your cat isn’t behaving like their normal self then they could be ill, it is best to call the vets just incase.

Here are some basic cat care tips to keep your cat fit and healthy:

  1. Feed your cat a high-quality diet
  2. Provide fresh water daily
  3. Change the litter tray regularly
  4. Schedule regular veterinary visits – it is important to make sure your cat is at the very least registered at a vet in case of an emergency.
  5. Vaccinate your cat – keep up on flea and worming treatments, and check for ticks regularly.
  6. Microchip your cat – if they go missing, microchipping is the quickest way for someone to reunite you with your cat
  7. Maintain a good grooming schedule
  8. Play regularly with your cat – provide your cat with toys and scratch posts

It is recommended to go to the vets twice a year to keep on top of your pets health.

It is important to understand a cat’s needs and what they need to be healthy, they are the UK’s most popular pet, yet not all of them are receiving the care they need to keep them fit and healthy.

Make sure you pay attention to any subtle signs your cat may be in discomfort. Cats don’t express pain in the same way we do, so don’t hesitate to contact or visit your vet if you are concerned for your cat’s health.
