    Tips on keeping your cat healthy
      

    Step 1: Prevention



    Give flea and heartworm prevention year-round.
     
     
     
    • Do not split meds between your cats. The dosage amount is precisely what is needed to keep your cat flea free.
    • Do not use dog preventatives on cats.
    • The American Heartworm Society recommends that cats receive year-round heartworm prevention in every state.
    • If your cat gets heartworms, there are no products in the USA approved for treatment, making prevention extremely important. Reduce your cat's risk with monthly prevention -- give a heartworm preventative like Heartgard Chewables for Cats.
      

      

    Step 2: Nutrition



    Ensure your cat receives proper nutrition each day with multi-vitamins.
     
    • If you check the ingredients label, you will see that many popular cat foods contain mostly fillers (as a first or second ingredient), by-products, and preservatives.
    • That's why vitamins are a great option to help meet your cat's nutritional needs. Our Soft VitaChews For Cats is a complete multi-vitamin and mineral supplement with taurine, digestive enzymes, and Omega 3.
    • If your cat is prone to UTIs, our UT Soft Chews For Cats are the perfect everyday solution in helping support a healthy urinary tract.
      

      

    Step 3: Joints



    Help maintain your cat's active lifestyle.
     
    • Over 12 million cats have joint problems and the majority of older cats have significant joint issues. To help your cat stay active, consider supplementing with glucosamine and chondroitin.
    • Try and keep your cat at a healthy weight so that you can help lessen the pressure on its joints.
    • If your cat limps especially after resting, takes several small jumps instead of a large leap, or shows reluctance to be touched, your cat may be in pain.
    • Our pharmacists and our cat customers also recommend Yucca as a safe all natural supplement that provides symptom relief similar to steroid medications.
      

      

    Step 4: Skin and Coat



    Help reduce shedding and hairballs.
     
    • You may wonder why your cat sheds so much. It could be health, diet, or seasonal issues. Try our Shed Terminator, a tuna flavored sprinkle capsule to reduce unwanted shedding and control hairballs.
    • Grooming your cat regularly is an important step in preventing cat hair from getting all over your house and in decreasing allergens.
    • Hairballs can stain your carpet and annoy your cat. Try Lax'aire, a gentle emollient laxative and intestinal lubricant with essential vitamins, fatty acids, and iron. It helps pass hairballs through your cat's digestive system and relieves constipation.
      

      

    Plus: Oral Care



    Routine oral care can greatly reduce your cat's risk of plaque and periodontal disease.
     
    • To prevent dental disease it's important to take care of your cat's teeth.
    • Brushing may not be easy, so it helps to use dental water additives that kill bacteria and plaque like Be Fresh. You may also consider giving your cat dental treats like C.E.T. Chews or Feline Greenies Dental Treats.
