It is caused by an over production of thyroid hormones, this causes the cat to burn through calories and normally suffer from weight loss.

Why do we give cats and dogs vaccinations?

Vaccinating our pet dogs, cats, rabbits and ferrets is an important tool in protecting them against serious infectious diseases.

Vaccines form part of our preventative healthcare programme alongside flea treatment, parasite treatment and neutering. Vaccines can be given as injection into the skin or in some cases drops into the nose.

Vaccines are safe formulations which provide protection against infectious diseases by generative an immune response. Vaccines may contain live or killed organisms or in some cases parts of an organism.

All vaccines are tested for safety and efficacy before they can be administered to pets to provide safe and important protection. Continue Reading
