When we pet our cats, we expect their fur and skin to feel soft and smooth, so it can be very alarming to suddenly discover a rough, inflamed, bumpy or oozing section of skin.
Hyperthyroidism is very common in middle aged to older cats and occurs when the thyroid gland produces too much thyroid hormone. Symptoms commonly seen are weight loss despite a great appetite, poor hair coat, increased drinking and urination, vomiting and or diarrhea, rapid heart rate, hyperactivity, increased yowling and irritability.
CBD has become extremely popular in the human health and wellness communities as a natural aid for anxiety, insomnia and pain. Now, many are beginning to wonder if this natural compound could be useful and safe for our furry friends, too.
Adopting a new cat requires a lot of pre-planning. You’ll not only need to meet your new member of the family and ensure it’s the right fit, but you’ll also need to get all the essentials: a litter box and litter, food, toys, a pet carrier and more.
More and more research is being conducted on the systems of bacteria and other microorganisms that play important roles in our bodies. Along with this research has come the push for probiotics, typically pills or capsules containing beneficial bacteria.
Everyone’s appetite can fluctuate from time to time. You might be starving by dinnertime one day and only feel like having a light meal the next. However, when we give our pets food each day, we usually expect them to eat it right away.
Because of our cats’ litter box habits, it is relatively easy to notice when they are not as “regular” as they should be. When daily scoopings turn up empty multiple days in a row, it is pretty clear that something is wrong.
Cat owners are intimately familiar with hairballs. While not every pet will experience hairballs at the same frequency as others (particularly those with long hair), most cats will have at least one throughout their lives.
We live in a busy world, and unfortunately, we can’t always be home as often as we’d like to give our pets the love and play time they deserve. But that doesn’t mean our cats have to sit at home, bored, with nothing to do.
If you own a cat, you have more than likely gotten the joy of watching it tentatively walk onto a pile of blankets and softly press its paws on the surface. Or, your cat may have even come up and done this on you!
