   July and warmer days, what to do?

   Cats can't sweat like we do! So to cool off, they will pant and lick their fur. Here are some other ways to help keep your cat cool.

   Now that the summer heat is upon us, if you leave your home, make sure there's plenty of fresh water for your pet - especially indoors - and make sure that it's changed daily! Several sources of water inside and out will help to prevent dehydration.

   And don't forget the litter box! In muggy weather it should be changed whenever you hear business being done. Cats are very clean animals by nature, so help them out.
   Just scoop the clumps, put them in a small lunch bag (best to use an old metal serving spoon to do this), and then toss the bag into the outside trash or nearby container (with lid and liner) to empty later. Much nicer for all that way.
   You might keep a small dust buster vacuum nearby too. In fact if you place the litter box into a larger cardboard box it will catch some of the loose litter. Make sure the cardboard box is not too high. You could even cut away a bit for an entrance.
   And even if it's summer, it's a good idea to keep your cats indoors, especially after dark or during inclement weather. Get your pet a night visible collar too and a name tag. Remember, the Cat Doctor of Dover can implant a pet ID chip, so please ask us about it when you visit.

   We can't say this enough. Please make sure your cat's teeth are in tip-top shape and you'll prevent many problems, not to mention making your pet comfortable. Read more about it here. See why here.

Further your education on this topic here: Cat Dental Care 101.

For instance did you know that 85% of adult pets have dental disease? And that it's the single largest cause of health problems in cats?

So, please, always remember to ask Doctor Young about your pet's dental condition.
