The Bengal is basically a very robust cat that is not too susceptible to disease. However, your owners should keep a few things in mind to keep your baby tiger as healthy as possible.
The greatest danger to the health of a Bengal is her thirst for adventure and her curiosity. Anyone who has a representative of this lively, playful cat breed at home, should therefore be particularly responsible to make the apartment cat safe. Anything the cat can hurt should be placed out of its reach - and it should also be considered their climbing pleasure.
Possible dangers and health risks
When home and garden are prepared for the Bengal, a few more safety precautions should be taken in addition to the removal of hazards. It makes sense, for example, a special anti-tipper on the tilt window, which can save the gifted climber from life-threatening injuries such as the tilt window syndrome. If the cat wants to be a freer, it is important to make garden ponds, swimming pools and rain barrels cat safe, for example, with a board over which they can get out in an emergency. Most representatives of this breed are water lovers. As a freelancer, it may also be that the friendly, but dominant Bengal is a little more involved in battles with conspecifics, as quieter Stubentiger and that she bears from it wounds.
Beware of poisoning: The Bengal is vulnerable
As robust as Bengal is, it is so vulnerable to bacteria in feed. Make sure that you always serve her food fresh and that she does not eat anything, especially in the summer, to throw away. In general, you should always keep a good eye on it: If you get intoxicated, you should quickly see a vet.
In addition, you should be careful to set up poisonous plants in cat range, or to leave food that can harm the cat. It can never be ruled out that the Bengal is trying to make amends, because her curiosity ensures that nothing escapes her.
Regular vet visits and welfare
Regular vet visits are important in order to have the four-legged animals checked and to take precautionary measures against possible health risks. Talk to your veterinarian about the vaccines he considers useful and check your pet's coat regularly for parasites. Healthy food and a close eye on changes in coat, skin, weight and general condition are of course equally important.
The keeping conditions also play an important role in the health of the Bengal cat. To feel well, she needs plenty of space, variety, employment and movement. If she misses it, she suffers, can show behavioral problems and get sick.
