Cat Health and Care

Asthma in cats

It's not uncommon for cats to suffer from what is known as feline bronchial asthma, an allergic inflammation of the bronchi (bronchitis).

Cat Age

A cat’s age is not linear compared to a human’s age.

How a Sensitive Stomach Affects Cats

Around two-thirds of all cat owners think that their pet suffers to a greater or lesser extent from a food intolerance that has an impact upon its general state of health and predominantly the quality of its skin and fur. However, only in around a quarter of cases does an intolerance towards a food or certain ingredient manifest itself in the form of repeated vomiting and/or diarrhoea. It's important to differentiate intolerance from a real allergy, i.e. a reaction triggered by the immune system.

Neutering your Cat

When it comes to contraception and neutering for their own cats, animal lovers are often unsure.

Precautions for Kittens

As long as kittens consume their mother's milk, they will be well protected from infections by all the antibodies it contains.

Tartar in Cats

Old cats in particular often suffer from severe tartar, which is made up of brownish-yellow deposits on the surface of the teeth.

The First Visit to the Vet

Generally speaking, kittens are cared for exclusively and extremely well by their mother in their first six weeks and are protected from infections by antibodies in her milk. Should a kitten nevertheless fall ill, a quick trip to the vet is always advisable, since young cats in particular have little resistance, vital functions quickly malfunction and they can soon give in to severe illnesses.
