Panleukopenia: The #1 Cause of Feline Cerebellar Hypoplasia

Panleukopenia: The #1 Cause of Feline Cerebellar Hypoplasia

Panleukopenia: The #1 Cause of Feline Cerebellar Hypoplasia When people meet Sophie for the first time, the first question they usually ask is something like, “What’s the matter with her legs?”, “Why does she walk funny?”, or “What’s wrong with her?” After I explain that she has cerebellar hypoplasia (CH) and what that means, the next common question asked is, “What causes cerebellar hypoplasia?” While CH can be caused by a few different things, the most common cause is panleukopenia....

Celebrate the Year of the Cat with Wellness Complete Health #HappyMeetsHealthy

Celebrate the Year of the Cat with Wellness: Sophie at Petsmart

Celebrate the Year of the Cat with Wellness® Complete Health™ #HappyMeetsHealthy When my husband and I adopted our first cat Delilah over five years ago, one of the very first things I did was research cat food and nutrition. “You are what you eat” after all, and since Delilah was counting on me to make a healthy choice regarding her daily diet, I wanted her to have the very best. After a lot of reading and researching, I settled on...

Kylo Ren Sports a New “Do”

Kylo Ren Sports a New "Do" - Bootside cut after dental cleaning

Kylo Ren Sports a New “Do” Last Wednesday Kylo Ren went in for his first dental. It was actually the first time I’ve ever taken any of my cats to get their teeth cleaned. I knew the day would eventually come, but I wouldn’t have guessed that Kylo would be the first to need a cleaning, since he is only just over a year old. Usually it’s older cats that need their teeth cleaned, or so I thought. Kylo Ren had...

Is Your Vet AAHA Accredited?

Is Your Vet AAHA Accredited?

Is Your Vet AAHA Accredited? AAHA! – Not just a fun interjection to express your excitement over having just found that long-lost cat toy under the couch. AAHA is actually an acronym that stands for the American Animal Hospital Association. Established in 1933, AAHA is the only organization to accredit companion veterinary hospitals. You see, unlike human hospitals, veterinary hospitals are not required to be accredited. In fact, only 12-15% of animal hospitals in the US and Canada are AAHA accredited. Kinda...

Feeding Raw with Balanced Blends

Balanced Blends, raw diet for cats

Feeding Raw with Balanced Blends As a pet parent, making sure my cats have a top notch diet is a huge priority for me. Unfortunately, with the pet food market the way it is, it is difficult to find a commercial diet that meets all of my standards. Because of that, I started feeding my cats a homemade raw diet a few years back. In my opinion, the benefits of a raw diet are indisputable; however, it is time consuming to...

Today I Will Lovingly Sport My Cat Scratch

Cat Scratch on Face

Today I Will Lovingly Sport My Cat Scratch A few days ago I was lying on the couch with Sampson (our resident scaredy cat) curled up on my chest. We were enjoying a relaxing afternoon with our attic fan going and windows open. I moved my arm. That movement for some reason startled Sampson out of his sweet kitty slumbers, and he jumped straight up in the air. When he came back down, his back foot and claws landed on...
