When was the last time you brought your cat to the vet? Regular vet visits are one of the best ways to keep your pet healthy and parasite-free. Here are a few helpful tips and recommendations.
Parasite Control Tips:
- Visit the Vet – Having your cat examined annually will help make sure your pet is healthy and parasite-free.
- Test for Heartworm – Heartworm disease often goes undiagnosed. It’s important to have your pet tested for heartworm disease periodically or when your pet experiences any of the associated symptoms, including weight loss, asthma-like attacks and coughing.
- Administer Anthelmintic Treatment – Kittens should be treated starting at two weeks of age. The treatment should be repeated every two weeks until they are eight weeks old.
- Conduct Fecal Exams – Fecal examinations should be conducted two to four times during a kittens first year of life. Adult cats should receive exams once a year, depending on their health and lifestyle.
