Should Chlamydia be included in a feline vaccination program.... Jul 24 2014
... and what does this disease do in cats?
When Chlamydia infects a cat, the owner first notices their pet is sniffling and has a red, slightly swollen eye. In a few days both eyes are red and swollen. If allowed to continue, the infection can cause eyeball scarring and even pneumonia. Check with your vet about including Chlamydia in a feline vaccination program because this disease is somewhat
common, is harmful to cats, is zoonotic, and the vaccine significantly reduces infection. Nutritionals that have spirulina or Norweigian Kelp also help reduce Chlamydial and viral infections.
Cosequin is a patented, scientifically researched nutritional supplement to help cats maintain healthy joints. As cats age, it is common for their joints to become less flexible which impacts their mobility and quality of life. It contains a unique combination of sodium chondroitin sulfate, glucosamine hydrochloride, and manganese ascorbate which allows the slowdown of the enzymes that break down cartilage and it maintains the structure of your cat's joint. Cosequin for cats, has also been recommended by veterinarians to support bladder health.
Recommendation: As a supplement for cats: Initial Period - 4 to 6 weeks: Under 10 lbs - 1 capsule sprinkled on food daily Over 10 lbs - 2 capsules sprinkled on food daily
Capsules may be given once or twice a day depending on your cat's feeding schedule. Once desired response is obtained, capsules may be administered every other day to maintain your cat.
