We all know that February is the month of love. It is that time of the year when we take the time off our busy schedules and spend some quality time with our loved ones. In similar tandem, it is only fair if you extend the same ‘agape’ love to your kitty friend. And no, you don’t have to buy them a bouquet of roses, a bottle of wine or a bar of chocolates to match. But what’s a better way of showing some warmth and love to your pet than by scheduling a visit to your the local vet in the spirit of marking the National Cat Health Month?
What’s more, the second month of the year is also the official National Prevent a Litter Month. Under this program, local vets will be running special appointments for pet owners who need their new feline altered to help curb the growing problem of pet overpopulation. And did you also know that sterilization can also tone down your beloved pet’s urge to prowl or wander around? It has also been proven to be the panacea to several types of common feline cancers.
And as you plan to have them altered, next month is also a good time to have their pearly whites checked. In case you didn’t know this, over 70% of purring pals develop symptoms of periodontal diseases before the age of three. And, unfortunately, most of this cases go unnoticed as pet owners rarely pay any attention to a cat’s choppers. However, this is the month to get into the habit of regularly checking your feline friend’s breath, gums, and teeth for any tell-tale signs of an anomaly.
Lastly, in the spirit of promoting healthy living even to our feline companions, February is the best time of integrating a comprehensive weight loss program to their daily feeding log. In other words, this is the month on the calendar when we spare some time to take our pets for that annual visit to the vet that somehow always seems to escape our mind.
