Things All Cat Owners Should Know in Lynwood, CA

Female pet owner with cat, Lynwood, Montebello and East Los Angeles Veterinarian

Many first-time cat owners need to be educated about the best ways to care for their new pets. At Casillas Veterinary Hospital in Lynwood, CA, we strive to educate the new cat owners of the Lynwood area, because we believe that proper feline medical care is critically important. Below are some of the best tips we have to offer for new cat owners who come to us for advice.

  1. Vaccines prevent cat diseases. Cats get vaccinations just like people. Vaccines are delivered to cats on a schedule to ensure protection from a variety of common diseases. Even after the vaccines are administered for the first time, cats still need boosters to stay healthy and avoid problems. Your cat needs vaccines for many different diseases, including rabies, calicivirus, rhinotracheitis and others. As a pet owner, you aren't expected to remember all the different types of vaccines, or the vaccine schedule. Instead, your cat's veterinarian will track that information for you.
  2. Wellness exams prevent illness. Cat wellness exams help the veterinarian catch illnesses and conditions that can lower your cat's quality of life and lead to expensive medical bills down the road. By identifying and treating medical problems early, your cat's veterinarian can stop illnesses and diseases from advancing.
  3. Spaying and neutering can prevent diseases. You may have heard that spaying or neutering your pet is important because it prevents animal shelters from filling up. This is true, however, there are many other reasons that spaying and neutering your pet is important. If done early enough, these procedures actually protect your cat from diseases like cancer, and can also help curb behavioral problems.
  4. Dental care can improve quality of life. Cat dental care keeps your pet's teeth clean, prevents cavities and can even help prevent bad breath.
