5 Tips for a Healthy Cat

5 Tips for a Healthy Cat

As some of our favourite four-legged friends, caring for our felines is an important task. Our 5 Tips for a Healthy Cat is aimed at helping you in this task. Just like their canine counterparts, as pet parents, we must ensure they stay in tip-top health in order for them to have the happiest and healthiest life pawsible. 

From their teeth to their joints, keeping your cat healthy can help prevent illness and disease later in later ensuring your furry friend is happier for longer and you don’t end up with any pricey trips to the vets. Supporting the wellbeing of all your little furry friends, here’s everything you need to know about keeping your cat healthy this spring.

Free from Fleas

As the weather begins to warm and spring arrives it is not only the flora and fauna waking up. With parasites such as fleas and ticks becoming prevalent in warmer weather, ensure your cat is treated for fleas, ticks, and worms. We have a selection of natural parasite control to reduce the use of harsh chemicals on your pet including Verm-X Crunchies for Cats for intestinal hygiene and Be:Loved’s natural and plant-based Be:BugFree Flea, Tick, and Bug Spray.

To support their monthly flea routine, invest in shampoos and sprays to keep nasty parasites at bay. Neem oil is a fantastic natural, healthy and wholesome way of reducing the likelihood of flea infestation and will help keep your cat’s coat looking and feeling as fresh as ever before.

Optimise Oral Health

Taking care of teeth is more than just a human problem. Using their mouths to groom, eat and explore, keeping your cat’s gums and gnashers clean and healthy will help prevent problems with their pearly whites (such as plaque and tartar build-up) as they develop.

Like dogs, we need to maintain our feline’s teeth and gums, but as it is harder to brush your cat’s teeth than your dog’s teeth, we recommend investing in food and treats to support their oral health. Look for ingredients such as apple and mint to help freshen breath whilst cleaning teeth. If your cat is susceptible to tooth brushing, invest in a finger brush to gently clean your cat’s teeth after you’ve cleaned your own. This builds a daily routine.

Support Bones and Joints

Loving to leap and pounce on a daily basis, supporting your cat’s bones, joints and muscles is key to a happy cat. Needing healthy joints for active and purrrfect play, invest in natural supplements containing glucosamine and chondroitin, as these magical minerals are the best for bones and joints. You can also find these ingredients in some food and treats making them a scrumptious and satisfying snack with a difference.

Care for their Coats

We all adore a snuggle with our feline friends so keeping their skin and coats looking and feeling good is imperative. Despite regular grooming, your cat’s coat can shed and thin as they grow older so food and treats loaded with Vitamin E and Omega 3 Oils can be great for maintaining their feline fur.

Top Tip! Fish is a great way of naturally packing your pet’s food with Omega 3. Frozen pieces of fish are a great cost-effective way of treating your cat whilst pawviding them with foods rich in support for silky, smooth, and snuggle-worthy fur.

Calm their Kidneys

Urinary infections are increasingly common in adult cats so if you have a mature mog at home ensuring their bladder and kidneys are working correctly is fundamental to reducing the likelihood of nasty infections. Like in humans, urine infections can occur from dehydration so always ensure your cat has access to fresh, clean water. 

Understanding this irritating issue in our cats, brands are now creating food and treats aimed to support your cat’s urinary system so if your feline is prone to infections tempt them with a treat to support their bladder better than ever. 

So if you have a furry feline at home, follow our top tips to keep your cat naturally healthy and happy.
