Indoor cats have a reputation for being low-maintenance pets, but they actually do require a great deal of time, attention, and consideration. Sure, they may not stick a wet nose in your face at 5 a.m. to be let outside, but that doesn’t mean cats don’t have certain unique needs. Indoor cat care can be subtle at times, but for the health and wellbeing of your feline homebody, The Pet Experts at Springbrook Animal Care Center believe it’s an important investment.
The foundation of good health is strengthened with veterinary support. While an indoor cat may not have the same type of exposure to disease or parasites, it’s vitally important to receive routine medical care at least once a year. Through regular visits, we can determine baseline values that help chart a course of care for the future.
The want to provide outdoor experiences for the animals in your care is perfectly natural, but it’s not always the safest choice. Possible run-in’s with predators, exposure to toxins and parasites, and accidental injury are just a few of the reasons many cat owners decide to keep Fluffy inside the house. A strictly indoor cat continues to need special attention to health and wellness, and The Pet Experts at Springbrook Animal Care Center hope to help you achieve those goals.
The Hard Truth
Due to the various potential risks awaiting your cat on the other side of the door, his or her longevity could be on the line. Whether it’s the alluring scent of antifreeze on your neighbor’s driveway or the coyote prowling your neighborhood after dark, your cat needs close supervision and protection. Also:
