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.
We all enjoy the holiday season and want to make sure everyone, including your cats are safe. All the extra food, plants and decorations make the season festive and can certainly attract the attention of our feline companions. At our animal clinic in Tampa, our veterinarians recommend that you keep decorations, plants and non - pet food out of the reach of your cats for their protection.
Our cat vets in Tampa FL make recommendations for your cats vaccinations based on their lifestyle and habits. The major factor that is considered is whether or not your cat spends unsupervised time outdoors. For our indoor only cats, our veterinarians recommend Rabies and Feline Distemper vaccinations only. If any amount of time is spend outdoors, then the Feline Leukemia vaccination is added to your cat's vaccination protocol. It is always advisable to keep your cats indoors as often as possible but if they need to spend some time out in the great outdoors, make sure they are properly vaccinated.
We all know that our feline friends have very specialized personalities. That's what makes having cats as pets fun. And just like going to your own doctor who gets to know you over time, it is important that your veterinarian gets to know your cat. This is why it is important to visit the same veterinarian for examinations over the years. Then they can notice small changes in personality, activity, etc that someone not familiar with your cat can't. Not something that you can get at a shot clinic!
