Bringing a new pet into our lives is a fun and exciting time. For our other pets, though, it can be an uncertain and unsettling experience. With a few simple steps (and lots of patience!) we can help improve the chances of everyone getting along.
Is your cat at risk of heartworm? Many people answer “No!” because their cat lives indoors. But you only have to think of the annoying buzz of a mosquito around your head during the night, to know that bugs get indoors. And so yes, heartworm does affect cats, not just dogs.
If your cat has sore or scabby skin, get her seen by a vet. Skin disease is a strong sign that something is wrong, be that with the skin itself or as a complication of another problem.
