5 Tips on How to Care for Your Cat’s Health: The Proper Diet

Do you have a cat? If so, then this blog post is for you! In today’s article we are going to go over the proper diet and some food that cats can’t eat. We will also discuss the best way to care for your pet’s health and what steps you should take in order to keep them healthy and happy.

These 5 tips on how to care for your cat’s health will provide all of the information that it takes to make sure they live a long life with us, their human friends!

Get them a proper diet

Cats are carnivores so they need meat to survive. They cannot properly digest vegetables or grains which is why it’s important that the majority of their food intake comes from protein in order for your furry friend to stay healthy and happy!

What cat food? There are many types of cat food on the market today, however make sure you know what ingredients go into the product before buying any type of kitty meal! Some brands use filler foods such as corn or soy instead of quality meats like chicken breast which will cause an upset stomach and could end up being harmful to your pet if consumed regularly.

What cats can’t eat? These animals should not be given these items at all or in any amounts:

  • Avocado
  • Grapes, raisins, or currants
  • Chocolate (this is toxic for cats!)
  • Onion and garlic which can lead to anemia as well as make them very sick!

Brush their fur often

Cats are natural hunters who need a way to get rid of the hair they catch from hunting down prey so brushing it out before it’s ingested is a good idea! Plus, it prevents hairballs which can be fatal to your pet.

What cat brush? There are many types of brushes for cats on the market today so you’ll want to pick out one that’s designed with their needs in mind- they like short bristles over long ones and also prefer circular motions when being brushed as opposed to back and forth strokes.

Be mindful about your cat’s teeth

Cats need dental care by brushing them weekly or once a month if possible. They also need daily oral hygiene which can include feeding wet food, adding natural items such as parsley, pineapple or wheatgrass to their water and brushing teeth on a regular basis.

What should you use when cleaning their teeth? There are many types in the market today but avoid products containing glycerin as this is known as an ingredient found in human toothpaste that could lead to kidney disease if ingested regularly and vitamin D or calcium propionate which will upset your furry friend’s stomach.

What else do I need to know about caring for my cat’s health? 

Be aware that they need plenty of exercise so make sure to play with them and spend time every day bonding which can help keep depression away!

Get your pet vaccinated on a regular basis.

Cats are more likely than other animals to catch disease so make sure to vaccinate with these types every year: rabies and panleukopenia (cat distemper).What type of vaccine should I use? There are many in the market today but some vaccines only protect against one virus and are only good for a year so make sure to read the label and get one that protects against at least two or three different viruses.

Provide your cat with fresh water daily

Cats can’t survive without it! Some people might think they’ll drink from any source of liquid but this isn’t true, which is why you should always have at least one bowl in their litterbox as well as another near where they usually sleep during the day time. If you’re on an outdoorsy adventure then be aware that having them carry around bottled water could result in some serious weight gain if done too often because these animals don’t sweat like humans do!

What type of dishes? There are many out there today but stainless steel is the best material because it doesn’t react with chemicals in tap water and is easy to clean.
