Is veterinary care in Vancouver WA necessary if your cat likes to chew on cardboard?
Does your cat like to chew on cardboard boxes? Many cats do! The question is, is this a reason to seek veterinary care in Vancouver WA? The answer is, probably not– but any time your cat, dog or other pet exhibits behavior that is seems odd or strange, it is a good idea to have them checked out by your vet, just to make sure there is no underlying health problem that is the reason for the behavior. For example, a cat with a tooth problem might begin chewing on things because its mouth is irritated. While this is probably not the case, any behavior change–( for example, if your cat suddenly starts urinating in the box it has previously just enjoyed sleeping or playing in)- is a reason to seek veterinary care in Vancouver WA (or your town if you do not live in Vancouver) to rule out any problems.
When you take your cat to the vet, always make little notes that might be helpful for him or her in reaching a diagnosis one way or the other, ( hopefully that there is nothing at all wrong, your kitty is just having fun) – such as when the behavior started, and if otherwise your cat is acting normally , or if you noticed any other unusual behavior either before or after the cardboard chewing began. Sometimes just a seemingly unimportant bit of information is a valuable clue for the vet! After kitty has been given a clean bill of health, all that is left is for you to provide your cat with plenty of cardboard boxes, in just the right size and shape for it to sit in and enjoy chewing the edges just for the fun of it!
