Get a lot of questions from well-intentioned pet owners asking what kinds of care they can provide at home. This is usually because many owners are concerned about the monetary costs associated with a trip to the vet. Because these requests are so common, I asked Dr. Debra to create a series of articles about what you can and can't do at home when your pet has a problem. As you may know, veterinarians can't prescribe or recommend treatment without having a client-patient relationship. A visit to your cat's doctor is the very best option, but well-informed home healthcare is the next best thing.
Here is real advice on what you can do at home for some very common cat problems.
1. Home care of the Vomiting Cat
2. Home care of the Cat with Diarrhea
3. Home care of the Cat with Vomiting AND Diarrhea
4. Home care of the Cat with a Laceration
