Environmental enrichment for our feline family members

by Alex Weber, DVM on 12/28/13

Our feline veterinary practice sees many behavioral issues on a daily basis.  It is true that there are many causes for these issues including medical, but sometimes it seems that boredom can be a factor.

It is always extremely important to rule out underlying medical causes for abnormal behavior in our feline patients.  A very common case that our feline veterinarians see is urinary spraying or inappropriate elimination. This behavior is often causes by a urinary tract infection and without proper diagnosis and treatment, the problem would never go away.  But once that is ruled out, sometimes keeping your cat active (mentally and physically) helps reduce or eliminate the behavior.  

Having the proper toys and cat fixtures (scratching posts, cat condos, etc) keeps your cat occupied and stimulated but the most important thing that these guys enjoy is interacting with their human house mates.  And don't forget that this usually helps us out as well by relaxing us.  All very important things to keep the household in balance.

If you have any questions about this or any other feline veterinary topic,  contact us at 813-289-3926.
