    A urinalysis is a simple urine test to assess your cats overall urinary tract (kidneys and bladder) health, liver function and screen for other metabolic diseases such as Diabetes. Veterinarians recommend a yearly urinalysis for middle-aged pets of eight years or older. In addition, if you observe the following symptoms on your pet: excessive water consumption, increased frequency in urination, pain on voiding, then a urinalysis is indicated.

  • Less is More When it Comes To Handling Cats in the Veterinary Clinic

    from The Conscious Cat

    The findings of a feline health study conducted by Bayer Health Care revealed that 52% of Americas 74 million cats are not receiving regular veterinary care. I would bet that the actual number is probably much higher, since this study only captured data from cat guardians who do seek some veterinary care, not those who never take their cat to the vet. And while some of this may be due to cat guardians not understanding how vitally important regular veterinary care is for your cats health, it...

    Cat allergies are one of the top five reasons why cats are returned to shelters. However, according to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, nearly 10 million people choose to share their homes with cats and dogs despite being allergic.

    Being allergic to cats does not have to mean that you cant share your life with cats. In addition to numerous things you can do to manage your cat allergies and still have all the benefits of sharing your life with cats, there are several...

    Lymphoma, also known as lymphosarcoma, is one of the most common cancers in cats. It accounts for 90% of all blood cancers in cats, and for about a third of all tumors overall in cats. Lymphoma affects the lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell that plays a critical role in the immune system.

    Since the lymphatic system transports lymph fluid throughout the cats system, delivering oxygen and nutrients to the bodys cells, lymphoma can appear almost anywhere and affect different organs.

  • Conscious Cat Sunday: The Waste of Worry

    I admit it: Im a recovering worrier. I have a long history of worrying, and I learned from the master. My dad had elevated worrying to an art form. It wasnt until the final months of his life when he truly learned to live in the moment. During my last visit with him, when he was already very ill, he told me how hed learned to appreciate every flower, and every butterfly. It sounds trite, but it resonated deeply with me, coming from a man who had spent so much of his life doing the exact...

    As is often the case for me, the cover of A Tigers Tale is what initially drew me to the book. My eye immediately went to the little black kitten on the rock! When I read the synopsis, I was hooked:

    When a normally mellow tiger at a rescue facility trees a terrified vet, animal behaviorist Grace Wilde needs to use her psychic ability to get to the root of the problem

    A Tigers Tale is the second book in Laura Morrigans Call of the Wilde series, featuring veterinarian and animal behaviorist Grace...
