Cats make wonderful pets. They can be very easy companions who don’t demand as much interaction or exercise as dogs. (Though every cat is different.) If you spend a lot of time away from home, have a small house or don’t have time to walk a dog, a cat can be an excellent choice of pet.
We love cats for many other reasons which only a cat owner can appreciate. If you have never had a pet cat you are missing out.
We strongly recommend all cats have yearly Feline 3 vaccination and health check.
Many times a cat chooses you. Every year at Pittwater Animal Hospital stray cats and kittens come through our hospital looking for a home. Mostly the cats we rehome are domestic short haired cats. They come in lots of different colours and a range of personalities.
We also see a number of pedigree cats that people have purchased from breeders around Australia.
At Pittwater Animal Hospital we can claim most insurance claims on-line so it is a very easy process for you.
At Pittwater Animal Hospital we recommend most cats to be fed high quality dry foods. Many of our adult cats are on the Royal Canin Dental Diet. This is a complete food that cleans your cats teeth as it eats. Others do better on diets for weight control such as RC Satiety Diet. Some cats with particular medical issues are better on wet food . We have RC Kidney diets as well as wet food for cats they have troubles urinating RC Urinary S/O. There are even diets recommended for gastrointestinal problems or allergic skin disease – RC Hypoallergenic.
To transition to a more appropriate diet for your cat there is lots of information to help you. Ask your veterinarian what they recommend is best for your cat.
Adult cats can also have a free new pet check. If your cat has an existing health issue you should be instead booking a consultation. We use these free new pet checks to examine for any abnormalities and review any vaccinations and medications. You will get a reminder for a yearly health check and vaccination on your mobile phone. As stated if your pet is unhealthy or injured a full consultation should be booked. Book Online.
As your cat ages we run various health programs.
