Vaccine confusion

Q: There is a difference in vaccine recommendations for people and those for cats that I find confusing. With people, the interval between vaccinations varies depending on the shot. For instance, people get a shot against tetanus every 10 years and a shingles shot just once. But cats are supposed to get all their core vaccines once a year. Why is that? Does the immunity from the diseases the shots protect against always wane so quickly? To continue reading this article or issue you must be a paid subscriber.

When your cat goes for his physical, the vet should check his eyes for injury, infections, and disease. But cats don’t much like people poking around their faces, especially their doctors. That’s why you might want to adjust your cat to the idea of hands near his eyes at home. To continue reading this article or issue you must be a paid subscriber.

For How Long Can a Cat Food be “New” and “Improved”?

Have you ever seen the word “new” or “improved” on a cat food label? If so, it shouldn’t be there for more than the first six months of production. “It’s not new forever,” says the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO), whose guidelines are generally written into law by each state legislature.
