Dasuquin for Cats is one of the best products on the market available for cats to have healthy joints. Joint problems in cats can start at any age but nearly ninety percent of cats that are twelve and older have joint problems. In addition the supplement will give your cat a healthier bladder.
|General Cat Care #1: Before You Bring Your Cat Home|
|You will need food, food dish, water bowl, interactive toys, brush, comb, safety cat collar, scratching post, litter and litter box.|
|General Cat Care #2: Feeding|
|An adult cat should be fed one large or two smaller meals each day. Kittens from 6 to 12 weeks need to be fed four times a day. Kittens from three to six months need to be fed three times a day. You can either feed specific meals, throwing away any leftover canned food after 30 minutes or free-feed dry food (keeping food out all the time).|
Feed your cat a high-quality, brand-name kitten or cat food (avoid generic brands) two to three times a day. Kittens can be fed human baby food for a short time if they won’t eat kitten food softened by soaking in warm water. Use turkey or chicken baby food made for children six months and older. Gradually mix with cat food. Cow’s milk is not necessary and can cause diarrhea in kittens and cats. Provide fresh, clean water at all times. Wash and refill water bowls daily.
Dasuquin for Cats is one of the most complete choices in a glucosamine supplement that you can find. There are many additional ingredients in this supplemental health product. They include a special formulation of avocado and soybean and chondrotin sulfate.
Plus you will find that your cats actually enjoy taking Dasuquin for Cats as the supplement comes in two cat friendly flavors. You can choose between the tuna or chicken flavored pills. One of the ingredients that really works well with joints is ASU which is a special compound of soybean and avocado.
|General Cat Care #3: Grooming|
|Most cats stay relatively clean and rarely need a bath, but they do need to be brushed or combed. Frequent brushing helps keep your cat’s coat clean, reduces the amount of shedding and cuts down on the incidence of hairballs|
|General Cat Care #4: Handling|
|To pick up your cat, place one hand behind the front legs and another under the hindquarters. Lift gently. Never pick up a cat by the scruff of the neck (behind the ears) or by the front legs without supporting the rear end.|
|General Cat Care #5: Housing|
|Cats should have a clean, dry place of their own in the house. Line your cat’s bed with a soft, warm blanket or towel. Be sure to wash the bedding often. Please keep your cat indoors. If your companion animal is allowed outside, he can contract diseases, get ticks or parasites, become lost or get hit by a car, hurt in a fight or poisoned. Also, cats prey on wildlife.|
The way that Dasuquin for Cats works is because of how each of the compounds work with the joints. For instance glucosamine and chondroitin both block the enzymes that cause the breakdown of cartilage in joints. Plus studies have shown that with the combination of all of these compounds you get the best protection against any further breakdown of cartilage.
Now you will have to decide whether or not you want Dasuquin for Cats while you are visiting with your cat's veterinarian as it must be prescribed. You will have to get the capsules from your veterinarian as well. Keep in mind that you will be using this as a supplement for your cat's diet for a time period initially of four to six weeks.
There are some things that you should know before you decide if Dasuquin for Cats is the best choice for your cat's joint health. One of these is that the capsules come as a flavored powder that should be poured out of the capsule and either sprinkled over or mixed into food. Of course if your cat will take pills you can use it this way as well but many find that this is not something that is really possible with their cats.
|General Cat Care #6: Identification|
|If allowed outdoors (again, we caution against it!), your cat needs to wear a safety collar and an ID tag. A safety collar with an elastic panel will allow your cat to break loose if the collar gets caught on something. An ID tag or an implanted microchip can help insure that your cat is returned if he or she becomes lost.|
|General Cat Care #7: Litter Box|
|All indoor cats need a litter box, which should be placed in a quiet, accessible location. A bathroom or utility room is a good place for your cat’s box. In a multi-level home, one box per floor is recommended. Avoid moving the box unless absolutely necessary. Then do so slowly, a few inches a day. Cats won’t use a messy, SMELLY litter box. Scoop solids out of the box at least once a day. Dump everything, wash with a mild detergent (don’t use ammonia) and refill at least once a week, less frequently if using clumping litter. Don’t use deodorants or scents in the litter or litter box (especially avoid lemon scent).|
