Cat fights are something we see quite regularly during the summer months.
They are hot and bothered and do not like to have other cats trespassing on their territory!
Cats mouths are very dirty and carry bacteria and if bites another cats there is a high change that a abscess will form.

Things to watch out for are lethargy, being off their food, painful in an area you could ordinarily touch them, strange swellings on their faces/cheek/lower back.
Basically they can get an abscess anywhere on their body.

Now a lot of these symptoms are similar to what you are seeing in your cats during this heatwave, so do you best to try and check over your cat for any wounds in case they have been in a fight!

Cats do tend to be little sun worshipers, however even this heatwave is proving a challenge for them!
Many are struggling, moping around uninterested in food/water or general attention πŸ™

Cats being Cats they are not the biggest drinkers and in this heat if they become unwell they can go down hill quite rapidly.
If you are worried about your cat or they are displaying some strange behavior please call us on 0208 764 1254 and we would be happy to give you some advice.

!!!!!GIARDIA!!!!!GIARDIA!!!!GIARDIA!!!!!

Hello Everyone, please take a read of the below post explaining all about Giardia.
It is a parasite that dogs AND cats can get that causes intermittent diarrhoea that can only be cured with a very specific course of treatment.
We saw a lot of it last year and it has come back with a vengeance this year! If your beloved pet is experiencing on and off bouts of diarrhoea please call the surgery on 0208 764 1254 and we can give you some more advice.

PS It is Zoonotic, which means we can catch it too!Everybody meet gorgeous Gunner.... Unfortunately he was diagnosed with Giardiasis, a parasitic infection causing intermittent or persistent diarrhoea. In Gunners case, he also suffered from weight loss as his gut was unable to absorb those all important nutrients from his food.
We at Norbury Pet Health Centre are telling you this because we have seen an alarmingly high number of Giardia cases over the last few weeks. It is highly contagious amongst dogs and can also infect humans as Giardia is a zoonotic disease. Infection usually occurs via the ingestion of contaminated water. All these factors mean that strict hygiene standards should be maintained and picking up your dogs faeces immediately can help reduce the spread of infection.
The good news is that we can now easily diagnose and treat Giardia and generally the prognosis is very good, most dogs making a full recovery. However special care and attention should be paid to young dogs, elderly dogs and those with a compromised immune system.
We are pleased to say that Gunner made a full recovery and a repeat faecal test 1 week after treatment revealed he was free from the parasite! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
If you you are concerned about this disease or have any questions relating to this post, please call the surgery on 020 8764 1254

Cats, cats cats!
They are never big drinkers on a normal day to day basis but in this hot weather it is even more important to encourage our feline friends to drink more.
A few tips to encourage them to increase their fluid intake are;
1) Leaving a glass of water strategically placed on the floor so they think it is yours hehe
2) Adding a little bit of water to their wet food to make it a little bit more saucy!
3) Placing their water bowl/dish away from being next to their food. Cats tend to prefer to drink away from their meals.

Can also add - from personal experience - filling up a watering can to the brim and leaving it near the back door.

Also if you have a litter tray, Keep water bowl away from there πŸ™‚
