Ask the Cat Doc With Dr. Lynn Bahr

Ask-the-Cat-Doc-with-Dr.-Lynn-Bahr

I’m super excited to announce that Dr. Lynn Bahr will be taking over our Ask the Vet segment starting this month!

Dr. Bahr graduated from the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine in 1991. Unlike most veterinarians, she did not grow up knowing that she would become a veterinarian. “It was a cat who got me interested in the practice and I am forever grateful to him,” said Dr. Bahr. She met Rudolph on July 4th, 1980 and her life was changed forever. “He was a unique kitty with an adorable pink nose—it was pale when he slept and then bright red after play. It was my love for Rudolph that inspired me to join the feline veterinary profession. Helping cats and their owners is how I honor his memory.”Continue Reading

When it comes to keeping cats entertained and all conventional methods fail, you have to get creative. Melissa Krieger’s cat Jasper was fascinated with her multiple aquariums, watching the fish from a distance. To make the experience even better for Jasper, Krieger and her fish supplier created a unique design so Jasper could watch the fish as if he was underwater, too. Visit Good News Network for more about Jasper’s “Sea World” or watch the video below.

Mews and Nips: Your Cat’s Primordial Pouch – What Is It For?

Did you know that all cats have a primordial pouch, even normal weight cats? You may have a different name for the soft, saggy skin underneath a cat’s belly. I’ve heard it called anything from cookie pouch to coin purse to snack pack. When I managed a veterinary practice, one of our clinic cats had a very pronounced primordial pouch, and I used to call it his bed skirt. For more about this part of your cat’s anatomy, its function, and why it’s more pronounced in some cats and not in others, visit the Chewy.com blog.

I’m pretty sure that if cats had anything to say about it, they’d get rid of Halloween.

It’s up to us humans to reduce the stress of this holiday for feline family members and keep them safe so everyone can have a happy Halloween. Read our tips to keep your cats safe this weekend.
