How to encourage your cat to drink more water

Does your cat drink as much water as it should? Probably not. Cats are not "natural drinkers" so you may need to encourage your cat to increse their water intake. Cats need water in their diet to help prevent with urinary and other medical problems. It  is not always easy to encourage water drinking but here are a few tips to help your feline friend with its water habits.

 

Last Hope Animal Charity

Over the last months of 2014, we have become involved with Last Hope Animal Charity and their spay/neuter programs. They have also helped us share information on cats needing new homes. We are so impressed with their efforts to improve many animals lives, cats, dogs, rabbits and other small furry pets. We have neutered many stray and feral cats with their voucher scheme since joining them in September. We are also hoping to help them with some TNR (Trap-Neuter-Release) efforts in the future.

Just Cats Press Release

Just Cats is a new clinic dedicated to cats - only cats!

It’s a first for Dublin and follows international trends towards cat only vet care

For too long cats have been living in the shadows of our canine friends but a new clinic has opened its doors in Dublin aiming to change this and put cats on a pedestal (literally)!!  ‘Just Cats’ follows international trends towards cat specific veterinary care clinics due to the stress for cats associated with a visit to a vet.

When it comes to babies name, we know that in 2013, Jack and Emily were the most popular according to the CSO. But what about our furry friends? While trends and celebrity personalities often influence our choice of names of children, does it affect how we name our four legged friends? Up to now, no analysis or data has been available to reflect what we name dogs and cats but research from Just Cats Veterinary Clinic in Dublin has now clarified what we have all being waiting for.

Minding your Cat's Pearly Whites!

Brushing a cat's teeth is likely to be the single most effective way to reduce dental plaque and maintain long-term oral health. Like humans, brushing will not only prevent plaque and tartar formation; it will also promote healthy gums and reduce bad breath. Daily brushing is ideal, if it is possible for your cat.

Some cats are prone to dental disease, due to many factors including genetics, diet and their immune status. Rigorous home care or, in severe cases, multiple teeth extractions may be needed to help these cats.

Unsure about where to go or what to buy? Or even why you should?! Let us try and make it all a bit simpler for you...

Worming:

All kittens have worms. They get them directly from their mother's milk as newborns. You may never see these worms in your cats poo, but there may be millions of microscopic eggs in their poo, on their hair, or on hairbrushes, beds and carpets. If left untreated, worms can lead to poor weight gain and growth, weight loss, bloating, diarrhoea and even death! 

National Microchipping Month

It's National Microchipping Month! This is an initiative supported by many charaties and vets alike. To show our support, we are discounting the price of microchipping to €20 for the month of September and hope to get as many cats as we can chipped. This is so important to help reunite lost and injured pets with their owners quickly.

Why Microchip?

Microchip identification is the most permanent way to identify your cat. It is safe, practical & excellent value for money. It is also a requirement for most registries of purebred cats.

Just Neuter!

Here at Just Cats, we strongly recommend that all pet cats are neutered or spayed. There are numerous health benifits to spay or neuter and the risks of fighting, picking up injuries related to wandering and picking up contagious diseases are all decreased by having this procedure performed. Aside from the direct benifits for your cat, it is better for the cat population that you spay or neuter your beautiful pet. There are thousand upon thousands of ferel and pet cats and kittens killed and euthanised each year due to over-population.
