Feline Health - General
A pet owner's primary source of information concerning their pet's health and well being should be their veterinarian. The information provided here is not a substitute for veterinary care. In all matters pertaining to the care and treatment of a pet a veterinarian must always be consulted first.
There are many health related considerations in owning a cat. While preventative care and daily care are important so is awareness of disease and parasites. Transmissions paths can be complex: cat to cat, human to cat (e.g. contaminated clothing, shoes) and from the environment to cat. A cat can be exposed to health risks at the cattery, its new home or even at a vet clinic. Since many feline diseases are spread cat-to-cat, owners should be especially careful in allowing their cat to come into contact with other cats.
