Weight Management for your Feline – What to Do When Your Cat is Overweight
Perhaps the most common malnutrition problem with cats is obesity.  To be considered obese, a cat has to be at least 20% heavier than what is considered to be its optimal weight, and the excess weight is due to fat accumulation.  A cat that is 1-19% over its ideal body weight is considered to be overweight.  To maintain health and to ensure a long and happy life, cats should be neither obese nor overweight...

Tick Tock – How to Treat for Ticks around the Clock
Have you ever heard the saying, “Blood tells the tale?” In the case of ticks, that would definitely be an accurate statement.  On your cat, ticks can be fairly easy to spot, especially if your cat has a short fur coat.  If the ticks have just newly latched on to your cat’s skin, they will not yet have the telling distended body that is full of blood, their favorite and only meal they need to live on.  So how do ticks find their way onto your cat?...
