What every cat owner must know about cat health care

Cats are gentle and interesting animals. Because of this, many people choose them as their pets. But, in order to be a good cat owner, you must pay a lot of attention on your cat’s health. Health care depends on the age of your cat. 


•    If you have a kitten, it is a wise decision to take him to a veterinarian. He must screen your pet for signs of many diseases. Many veterinarians recommend leukemia and AIDS screening. Both conditions can weaken the immune system. Also, heartworms are another reason for concern. You should check this as well. Your kitten also requires a series of vaccines in order to maintain healthy condition. 
•    Health care of adult cats is a bit different. You will also have to take your cat to a veterinarian. She must be vaccinated every 1-3 years. Your veterinarian will give you more advices and recommendations if he thinks you need them.
•    When your cat is between 8 and 10 years old, she becomes a senior. You should know that older cats are at increased risk of developing certain health problems. You should pay attention to: kidney disease, liver disease, anemia and diabetes. Also, you should take your senior cat to a veterinarian more often, in order to prevent possible health issues.


Your cat needs physical activity as well. If you live in a small apartment, you must provide enough activity to her. If you live in a house and you have a big backyard, your cat will probably have enough physical activity. You should pay attention on sneezing and swellings in any case. If this happens, visiting a veterinarian is mandatory.
