Behavioral & Nutritional Counseling
Behavioral problems in cats can be extremely frustrating for owners. Inappropriate elimination and aggression are the two most common reasons why cats are surrendered to animal shelters. At Cats Exclusive, we strive to educate owners about normal feline behavior and identify causes for problem behaviors. Sometimes, “bad” behavior is caused by a medical problem. This is why a physical examination of your cat is an integral part of our behavioral consultation. Evaluation of your cat’s environment also helps us identify possible triggers that may contribute to the problem behavior. We will work with you to help design a treatment plan to address your cat’s unwanted behavior. This plan will include follow-up to make sure you get the results you want.
Cats are obligate carnivores, which means that they must have meat in their diet. Research suggests that cats do better with diets high in meat-sourced protein and restricted in carbohydrates. Many of our cats lead sedentary lives develop health problems if their food is too fattening. Cats need diets that are high in moisture and protein-rich, like canned or raw diets. Part of our mission at Cats Exclusive is to help you identify and meet your cat’s nutritional needs. We can also develop diet plans to help your cat lose weight if needed, to keep them healthier and happier longer.
