    Tips for Caring for Your Senior Cat

    Last updated 4 months ago

    Nothing compares to the bond between a cat owner and a cat! This special connection can last for years, from a cat’s childhood to its senior years. The veterinary experts at Lake Emma Animal Hospital have created this guide to help cat owners care for their senior cats throughout their older days:

    Increase Regular Veterinarian Visits

    Pet health is a priority at any age. That is why pet owners are advised to schedule yearly checkups with veterinarians to ensure that their pets are maintaining good health. When your cat becomes a senior, it is a good idea to increase these visits to twice a year. Scheduling checkups every six months will allow your vet to keep better track of your senior cat’s health. This also helps your vet spot any health concerns early instead of when they become a bigger issue.  

    Change Your Cat’s Diet

    As your cat gets older, he experiences changes in his body as well as his metabolic rate. This means that the food he ate in his younger days may not provide the same nutrients or benefits he needs in his older ones. Your veterinarian can help you determine what type of food your cat needs to maintain good healthy during his senior years. This will likely be a diet that has less fat but more protein than the diet he once held.

    Keep Comfort in Mind

    Just like humans, cats lose energy and stamina as they get older. Cat owners should know how their cats change as they age to figure out the best ways to keep them comfortable and happy. If your cat is losing the ability to fully groom himself, invest in a good brush and help him get rid of loose hairs and keep fur beautiful and clean. You should also make sure your cat stays warm and dry at all appropriate times.

    Lake Emma Animal Hospital can help you care for your cat during his senior years! Contact us at (407) 792-3322 to discover the benefits of trusting your cat’s health to our friendly animal hospital staff.

    Dealing with Puppy Mouthing

    Last updated 4 months ago

    Is your new puppy mouthing and chewing? This is a normal habit for puppies that are exploring their surroundings. The teething stage can also cause puppies to chew to find relief. It is important to teach your puppy early on what she can chew on and what she should avoid.

    As you will see in this video, it is a good idea to keep your puppy on a long leash for training purposes. You can easily pull your puppy away if she starts chewing on feet or furniture. Give her time to settle down and guide her to an appropriate chew toy or treat. Reinforcing good behavior will help your puppy keep her chewing to her toys and food.

    Lake Emma Animal Hospital can help you learn more about what to expect from your new puppy. Discover how our animal hospital veterinarians can help your puppy grow into a healthy adult by calling us at (407) 792-3322.

    How to Help Your Pets with Spring Allergies

    Last updated 4 months ago

    You and your pets visit the veterinarian for regular checkups—but what do you do when it comes to pet allergies? Just like humans, pets can suffer from allergy symptoms during the spring. Knowing what signs to look for and what to do after spotting those signs is important for keeping your pets healthy and happy:

    Spot Allergy Symptoms

    If you think your pets may be suffering from springtime allergies, it is important to take note of any symptoms they may be experiencing. This will help you explain your pets’ allergies to your veterinarian, allowing him to find the most effective treatment plan. Common symptoms of spring allergies in pets include noticeable hair loss, red spots over the body, and excessive licking.

    Be Aware of the Pollen Count

    It is a good idea to keep track of your area’s pollen forecast. Pet allergies can be very similar to human allergies and keeping an eye of the pollen forecast will help you determine when to take your pets outside and when it is best to stay indoors. When your pets must go outside during high-pollen times, reduce their risk of suffering from allergy symptoms by cleaning their feet off when they get back inside.

    Keep the House Clean

    You may think that your pets’ allergy symptoms are due to outside factors, but indoor elements can also be behind signs like excessive licking and hair loss. Dust mites are common causes of allergy symptoms. When there is a lot of house dust, pets may start exhibiting signs of springtime allergies. Keep your pets as healthy as possible by sticking to a regular cleaning routine. Dust all surfaces so that everything either sticks to the cleaning product or falls to the floor. Finish the job by sweeping and vacuuming to thoroughly remove the debris.

    If you are concerned about your pets’ allergy symptoms, contact the veterinary professionals here at Lake Emma Animal Hospital. Check out our website for more facts or give us a call at (407) 792-3322 to learn about our animal hospital and pet boarding services.

    How to Help Your Cat Lose Weight

    Last updated 4 months ago

    Obesity is a problem that humans and felines alike are experiencing in growing numbers. The reasons for the increased incidence of weight issues are the same as well. Too little physical activity and too many calories can quickly lead to an excess of pounds. If your furry friend has a weight problem, changing both his eating and exercising habits can get him back to a healthy physique. If your cat is like most felines, he may love to snooze away the day. To kick-start his weight loss program, make playtime a daily part of his schedule. Use string, a stuffed animal, or another toy to attract his attention and get him moving around your house. Instead of allowing your cat to eat at his leisure from an open feeding bowl, designate specific times during which you give him a limited supply of food.

    Lake Emma Animal Hospital can help you maintain a healthy weight for your pet. To discuss your cat or dog’s weight problems with a veterinarian, call (407) 792-3322. Our animal hospital also provides pet vaccination and pet boarding services for residents of Lake Mary, Sanford, and Altamonte Springs.
