National Cat Health Month

February is National Cat Health Month, a great time to learn more about keeping cats healthy and happy. Here are some tips to consider.

5 ways to keep your cat healthy

1. Provide a balanced diet full of the essential vitamins and nutrients your cat needs. Avoid feeding them human food, as it can be unhealthy for them. Explore the many fresh and raw food options to improve their diet. Locally, we recommend Pupologie, Dexter’s Deli, Earthwise Pet or Pet Power as go-to sources of great food and pet products. The Staff at these local pet shops in Encinitas, Del Mar and Carlsbad are very knowledgeable.


2. Make sure your cat is getting enough exercise and playtime. This helps keep them mentally and physically healthy. Buy enrichment toys, that make them work for their food or snacks. Consider buying a tight-fitting harness so you can take them on walks.

3. Provide regular veterinary check-ups to ensure your cat is disease-free and do not over-vaccinate, especially if you have an indoor-only cat.

4. Practice good hygiene and clean up after your cat to prevent the spread of germs and illnesses. Scoop litter boxes daily and have one box per cat, plus one. Grooming can help prevent skin problems. Make sure you have a comb or brush handy and use it daily to prevent hairballs.


5. Spend quality time with your cat to build a strong bond and provide emotional support. If you’re working long hours, or traveling, contact us to fill in for you and provide fresh food, water and lots of love until you return home.
