The old myth that cats are ‘low-maintenance’ pets has led to behavioural issues stemming from stress and boredom. This had contributed to rising rates of feline obesity and an increase in stress-induced diseases such as urinary tract infections.
While it is certainly easier to keep an indoor cat healthier than a cat that ventures outside, it is really the bond between the cat and the owner that keeps cats at their healthiest. Showering your cat in love and attention is the best way to keep them happy and content.
Litterbox duties means cat owners are very familiar with their pets' bathroom habits. There is nothing fun about cleaning the box but it is a great way to keep an eye on your pet's urinary tract health. If you notice changes in your cat's bathroom habits, this may indicate a urinary tract infection.
Lower urinary tract problems can affect cats of all ages. There are some cats who suffer from urinary tract infections (UTIs) that clear up when they are given antibiotics. Others develop blockages and bladder stones, which require surgery to remove.
Urinary health products for cats such as Cystophan, CystoPro, Acidurin and Urimav can help to improve your cat’s urinary health and prevent the formation of blockages and bladder stones and reduce the number or severity of urinary tract infections.
It's important to understand that diarrhea is not a disease, but rather a sign of a variety of diseases. Anti-diarrhoeal products such as Direa Tablets can be used to control diarrhoea brought about by a variety of causes, including:
- Dietary changes - cats can be particularly sensitive to changes in their brand or type of food
- Infectious agents - e.g. bacteria, viruses, coccidia, and intestinal worms
- Imbalance of gastro intestinal flora
- Food poisoning from spoiled food
- Allergies or intolerances to certain foods
For most cats, if their diarrhoea only lasts between 24-48 hours, typically they do not need to visit their vet. However, your cat can become dehydrated if their diarrhoea persists for longer than two days. At this stage, you should consult a veterinarian. You should also take your cat to their vet if their diarrhoea is bloody, looks black, or is accompanied by a high temperature, vomiting, lethargy or a lack of appetite, as this could indicate a more severe problem.
Hemp Oil Products
In case you're wondering if hemp seed oil is safe for cats, then the answer is YES! Hemp seed oil is a fantastic nutritional supplement for cats. It is rich in essential fatty acids and contains high levels of nutrients.
Various health issues can be helped by essential fatty acids, including joint, heart, and kidney diseases. In addition to their anti-inflammatory properties, essential fatty acids normalize the heart rhythm and promote kidney function. Studies have also suggested that the essential fatty acids found in hemp seed oil can have a positive effect on mood and help to reduce anxiety levels.
The HempPet Hemp Oil Blend with Hoki Fish and MCT Oil for Cats is rich in EFAs, DHA and EPA. It is 100% natural, Australian made, and is chemical and pesticide free.
Keeping your cat's digestive tract balanced with an assortment of good bacteria will provide them with a stronger immune system and ensure your feline remains healthy.
Probiotics are a great way to add extra good bacteria to your cat's diet. Probiotics contain live, friendly microorganisms that can help to prevent or treat several illnesses, particularly those related to your cat's digestive system.
Pro-Kolin+ is a probiotic paste that contains ingredients to support gastrointestinal health in both cats and dogs. It’s main ingredients are a natural, friendly bacterium, food for the beneficial bacteria, kaolin, a natural binding agent that aids in firming up faeces, and pectin, which is included to help soothe the lining of the gut.
The ProN8ure range of multi-strain probiotics is available in a variety of forms including liquid, paste, powder and soluble powder, and the ProN8ure probiotics have also been added to vitamin and mineral supplements for overall health support.
Vetafarm Synbiotic 180-S is a probiotic supplement developed by veterinarians for use in dogs, cats, birds, rabbits and reptiles. The nine-strain probiotic blend in Synbiotic 180-S aids in nourishing gut flora, can help to improve your pets immune system and is an ideal supplement for restoring beneficial bacteria levels after illness or antibiotic therapy.
Vomiting in Cats
There is a common misconception that vomiting is a normal behaviour for cats, however, if your cat is vomiting more than once a week, or once every few weeks for an extended period of time, this is not normal behaviour, and you should make an appointment for your cat with their veterinarian.
There are many things that may cause vomiting in cats including:
- Regurgitating food - from eating too fast or too much
- Food sensitivity - they may not be tolerating a change in their diet
- A foreign body - cats can sometimes eat things they shouldn’t such as a piece of string or a hair tie
- Hairballs - particularly common in long haired cats who can develop balls of fur in their stomach and will regurgitate them to prevent an intestinal blockage
