Keeping your cat healthy

Preventative care is essential for keeping your cat healthy.

Like all pets, cats need regular trips to the vets, for routine health checks and vaccinations. In this section you will find information on how to choose the right vet, what everyday health care your cat needs, information on the right diet for your cat and what happens if your cat should have kittens.

Puzzle feeders

Most cats are fed their food in a bowl in the same location day in, day out, meaning little or no exertion is needed in order to obtain food. Gone are the opportunities to search for, capture and kill their food – all of which involve mental and physical exertion. For the cat, hunting is problem solving – firstly, the problem of finding the prey needs to be solved, then the problem of successfully capturing it and killing it has to be accomplished before eating can commence.

Vaccinating your cat

Just as in humans, vaccinating your cat helps to protect him or her against several serious and/or life threatening diseases. Anyone who cares for his or her cat will want to protect it in this way and vaccination is a critical part of a proper preventive healthcare programme.
