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.
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.
