Here are some important health topics to discuss with your cat’s Veterinarian

Feeding: a healthy cat needs to eat the right food, based on their age, weight, breed and more.

Exercise: whether your cat lives indoors or goes outside, they need to move around and be active.

Vaccinations: cats can be vaccinated for many diseases; the most common are feline distemper, rabies, leukemia, and FIP. Your veterinarian can determine which vaccines your cat should receive.

Parasite Control: there are parasites (bugs) that can live inside and outside your cat that need to be controlled; your cat’s veterinarian can help you keep these under control
