Pet Care Tips: Get your cat tested for FeLV and FIV

If you've recently adopted a community (stray) cat, we would highly recommend that you bring him to the vet for the Feline Leukaemia Virus (FeLV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) tests.

These viruses DO NOT transmit to people; so please don't worry. However, if you have other cats at home, they may be infected by a FeLV or FIV-positive cat.

Your vet will be able to share more with you on the viruses and the care required if your cat is tested positive.

Adopting a community animal is a kind act and we say, "thank you!"

Beat the Monday Blues: Eating #likeaboss...

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Take it from this doggy right here!

It must have taken lots of practice and effort on the owner's part to train the dog to 'act' with him. If you're thinking of feeding bananas to your dog, you can but only do it in moderation as they are high in sugar.
