All that to say, I scribbled up this little doodle for my cat-loving mom in honor of her late mother.
Happy Caturday, friends!
Tip of the Day
Our last couple tips in the parasite discussion are all about preventatives. We've already mentioned the importance of keeping up on administering parasite preventatives for your furbaby, even year round if possible. But, there's more to it than just that.
For today, we're going to specifically mention the importance of making sure you are administering a preventative only to the species for which it is intended. This can be crucial, and even a life or death scenario. For example, some preventatives formulated for dogs can have devastating effects on cats. This is because preventatives for dogs can contain pyrethrin/pyrethroid, which is safe for dogs. Cats, on the other hand, are highly sensitive to this compound, and it is toxic to them. This is not only something to keep in mind when purchasing or using preventatives directly on a cat, but also when using preventatives on a dog who lives with or has contact with cats. Do your research and discuss with your veterinarian the best preventatives and methods for keeping both your kitties and pups healthy and safe.
