If you’re been watching the news and reading the newspapers these days, you know we/the U.S. is pretty much in a flu epidemic. And so, flu “shots” have been available nationwide for the folks.
But what safe health measures are in place for the kitties?
While kitties aren’t known for being prone to contracting the flu, they can get some other human diseases. And one of the easiest ways to detect a kitty’s health, particularly the senior’s health, is through a blood test.
This blood test is especially useful, since many of the diseases an older cat can get do not show up as symptoms until it’s too late to help your kitty.
So a trip to the vet on a regular basis, where, among other things, the kitty gets a blood test, can show whether she has renal failure, blood issues (like leukemia), diabetes, etc.
If these Medications are available for your kitty, if something abnormal shows up in the blood.
Yours in scheduling regular trips to the vet,
