With the correct care many infected cats continue to live fulfilling lives. To give your cat the best chance for a healthy future we recommend the following:
Avoid giving your cat raw meat, raw eggs and unpasteurised milk. Instead make sure they receive a well balanced, good quality diet. Feel free to ask us for more information on a nutritional plan for your cat.
Routine parasite control
Ensure your cat has a strict parasite control regime protecting them from intestinal worms, fleas, ticks and heartworm. They should receive three monthly protection from worms, and monthly protection from fleas and heartworm.
Your cat should be vaccinated every year to protect him/her from the most common cat diseases.
Wellness visits at least every six months
Your veterinarian needs to see your cat at least every six months for a full physical examination. They will also conduct blood and urine tests regularly to pick up early changes associated with disease or illness. If any changes are detected your veterinarian will adopt an aggressive approach for diagnosis and treatment.
