Good news, Colorado cat families! Worms in cats aren’t as common here as in other parts of the country. Our Castle Rock veterinarians see about one in 10 cats come in with worms over their lifetimes.
But if your cat is among the 10 percent – or you’d like to help your furry friend avoid that incidence rate – we’ve put together this article for you.

Did you grow up with cats? Or, have you had a cat for many years? If yes, it may seem strange to go to the vet for cat dental cleanings.
But cats need dental care just like people!
As with human medicine, veterinary medicine continues to evolve and get better. Over the last decade, cat dental cleanings have become common. They’re a great way to help your kitty avoid health issues and live a longer and healthier life.

When it comes to dental care for people…
We typically don’t it a second thought. You brush your teeth at least once a day, and you regularly get your teeth cleaned. You know that preventive care is the best way to keep your mouth healthy. It also helps you avoid costly and painful dental procedures.
The same applies for our cats and dogs!
