Vaccinations*: It is important that your cat be vaccinated at all stages of her life. We recommend the following vaccines for most of our feline patients:
For cats, we vaccinate using the annual vaccine. Rabies is a viral disease that can affect all warm-blooded mammals.
Grooming – Brush frequently to keep coat from matting and trim toenails to prevent overgrowth. Or, bring your pet to our Professional Pet Groomer, Janice Francis. Janice has been grooming at Central Texas Animal Hospital since 1991. She is known for her beautiful work and for her skill in making dogs and cats feel comfortable during their visit.
Parasite Prevention – There are numerous parasites that can “bug” your cat:
Fleas – We recommend Frontline Plus Flea and Tick Control. We also recommend Revolution flea control.
**We caution against the use of over-the-counter flea control products, as some have proven to be toxic to cats.**
Heartworms – Revolution- is a great heartworm preventative and prevents other parasites such as roundworms, ear mites and hookworms. This is very important, since some of these parasites are contagious to humans.
