March is upon us, and it’s the purr-fect time to give your feline friend the royal treatment they deserve! While you may already shower your cat with love and attention year-round, this month provides an excellent opportunity to ensure all their needs are met and to pamper them like true royalty.

  1. Schedule their annual wellness visit: OK, your cat might not like visiting us, but regular wellness care and vaccinations are crucial to their overall health and wellbeing. To make your cat’s visit less stressful:
    • Try to schedule their appointment during the quietest part of the day. Our helpful staff can give you recommendations.
    • Get the carrier out a few days in advance and use a calming pheromone spray and their favorite treats.
    • The day of the appointment, keep the carrier covered with a towel or blanket to reduce visual stimuli.
  2. Talk to us about wellness bloodwork: Cats are masters of disguise regarding injuries and illnesses. Conditions such as kidney disease, hypothyroidism, diabetes, and even certain types of cancer can be detected by adding routine lab work to their annual wellness visit.
  3. Take care of your cat’s oral health: Painful, broken, and infected teeth can lead to various medical problems, including inappetence. Routine dental cleanings and providing good home care keep their mouths healthy.
  4. Feed high-quality cat food: With so many foods to choose from, finding the right one for your cat can be tricky. Discuss your pet’s nutritional needs with us. We’ll cut through the hype and help you choose the best food for your cat.

Most cats, even indoor cats, should be on appropriate parasite prevention year-round. In addition to their healthcare needs, providing your cat enrichment activities and toys helps keep their mind and body active. We also recommend pets and snuggles, as tolerated.

As your cat’s healthcare provider, we’re glad to make recommendations for all their needs. As your trusted cat healthcare provider, we’re here to support you in all aspects of your cat’s well-being. Schedule an appointment today to ensure your feline companion stays happy and healthy this March!
