October is Pet Wellness Month, and for many of us keeping ourselves healthy and well is as important as it is looking after our humans. We present a roundup of some of the crew’s most helpful posts. We are sharing unexpected, fun or sometimes traumatic events and the lessons we learned.
The cats on the blog cover a wide range of ages from youngster to seniors, so previous experience has meant we have some great stuff to share that you might have missed before!
Pet Wellness – It’s All About The Animals
Let us share our adventures when we encountered an orphan duckling in our back garden. We all see ducks, but how much do you really know about them!
The Duckling Drama Finding a struggling tiny lost duckling taught us a lot about the species and what you can and can’t do, and our video for for the post earned us a Finalist place in the BlogPaws® Nose to Nose Awards this year.
Change a Pet’s Life Day – We can all change a pet’s life day every day by adopting, fostering and not shopping at puppy farm pet shops. Here are our valuable tips.
Pet Wellness – OK Some of it IS about the Cats
Drama with Dusty Sometimes things happen on the worst possible day of the year. You feel something is wrong but you think your fur kid has settled down again, only to find it takes a serious turn.
Harvey Hogs the Drama Limelight – A wound that would not heal. A sudden vet visit, and we share the important things we learned.
Lilies Kill Cats – A lovely flower that kills. What to do if your cat does ingest lily pollen.
Take Your Cat To The Vet Day – Are vets the same worldwide? Just what does a vet do during a check up? we discovered what vets do and why in this essential post.
Harvey’s Ear Surgery – His previous life as a stray had left Harvey at risk from skin cancer on his ear tips. We recorded our experiences so that anyone else with a cat (or dog) undergoing a partial pinectomy (ear tip removal), can read how coped with the experience.
Mr Puffy Face – When a pet develops a sudden allergy what the heck do you do?
Always Be Conscious of Pet Wellness
We need to remember that our pets need regular vet visits every year, and every six months for a senior.
Not every vet visit is a cause for drama and worry. Nine out of ten visits will be for wellness checks and injections. We hope you can look on your vet as a valued colleague in your pet welfare programme. Never be afraid of the vet, and if you feel nervous, write down any questions before you go to the surgery.
