Chartreux health Health Information

The Chartreux's thick coat is prone to a good deal of shedding in the springtime. Daily rub downs and twice a week brushings will be not only enjoyed by the cat but also advantageous to your furniture and allergies in the end. The Chartreux coat is water resistant and so if you are planning on bathing this cat, keep in mind that you have a good deal of work ahead of you. The Chartreux is sensitive to highly rich foods and so most cats are weaned to adult food at five months. To keep obesity in line, it may be necessary to feed adults a light cat food. The Chartreux should have regular dental examinations from its vet since they are prone to gingivitis.

A breed related health concern is Patellar Luxiation and you should make sure that the breeder you are purchasing your Chartreux from has had both parents checked for this. Failure to pay attention to this can result in complete lameness, since it shows very few symptoms.
