Adult Cat Care


Most adult cats require a vaccination usually every 2 years to protect them from the cat flu viruses such as Rhinotracheitis, Calcivirus and Panleukopenia. These diseases can be fatal. A health check is recommended every year even if a vaccination is not required to detect problems early such as dental, heart or kidney disease, and also to assess whether more frequent vaccination is needed e.g. for Persians prone to Herpes virus.


All adult cats should be wormed every 3 months with an all-wormer such as Milbemax or Drontal.

Flea Treatment

All year round preventative flea treatment is necessary in Northland due to the high environmental challenge. Tick treatment may also be required, depending on where you live.


All cats need to be fed a diet that is complete and balanced. Check what you are feeding, if it does not contain both these words ‘complete and balanced’, the diet does not contain all the nutrients and vitamins for optimal health. Always feed a diet specific to your pet’s life stage or condition.


All cats should be neutered (unless used for breeding purposes) which helps control the already overburdened animal population as well as preventing health problems.


Microchipping is not compulsory for cats but it is recommended. It dramatically increases the chances of you getting your cat back should they get injured, go missing, or be stolen.
