Taking Proper Care of Cats
With age, cats need proper care, and sometimes prevention can help them avoid a lot of problems. Although not all cats age at the same rate, a cat is generally considered elderly from about age 13. That said, with proper care, a cat can live up to 18 or 20 years. Cats Montreal offers a range of adapted care for older cats in Montreal: call us for an appointment!
Look Out for Signs
It is important to stay on top of your cat's behaviour and report your concerns to a veterinarian. The vet can reassure you and, if necessary, advise you on preventive care or appropriate treatment. If you notice any of these changes in behaviour, consider consulting a veterinarian:
Vomiting or diarrhea
Increased thirst or urination
Loss of appetite
Changed habits (interactions, meows, etc.)
Our Feline Geriatric Services
If your cat is suffering from an age-related illness, we can help maintain his/her health. Thus, in cases of kidney failure, hyperthyroidism, pancreatitis, hepatitis or other diseases, we can give your companion all the best care.
