Be collar savvy

We admitted a cat yesterday that had been seen wandering for some time and was brought in by a local cat rescue charity. The poor girl was wearing a cat collar that had become lodged under one of her forelegs. We were able to cut off the collar in consult, but it had rubbed a nasty sore in her armpit.

This is a stark reminder that, if you prefer your cat to wear a collar, you specifically choose one that is a quick release. Quick release collars will bear a certain amount of pressure but will then automatically open to avoid causing any harm to the wearer. We do stock these in practice so please feel free to ask about them when you are next in.
