Feasting, football, Aunt Louise pinching cheeks and Cousin Al snoring on the recliner --Thanksgiving draws family together and that means our beloved furry family members, too.
Cats are fastidious creatures! Since their skin is very sensitive, daily bathing and grooming are huge parts of their routine. Typically, your cat's fur should feel clean and smooth to your touch. Things like redness, lumps, flaking or scaly patches, pimples, or spots with hair loss can be an alert that kitty needs to visit her Brook Farm friends soon. If you start noticing that your feline friend smells strangely, or he or she is licking or scratching an area more frequently, it could be a warning sign of a serious problem for your cat's skin.
A wise woman once said, 'A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down'. Aside from being a fun little earworm, Mary Poppins was really onto something there. If Dr. Clark or Dr. Kanouse has written a prescription to treat an illness or medical condition in your cat or dog, it's extremely important that they take their medication to feel better as soon as possible.
Here at Brook Farm, we are proud to do our part to ensure all pets are spayed or neutered in a safe and proficient manner.
