Hello! I recently added a 13 week old kitten to the family, all of our prior cats have already been microchipped by the rescues we got them from. This time however Lilly was 6 weeks old when we got her and had absolutely nothing done to her prior to us getting her. My question is are there any risks to getting your pet microchipped? She is going to be a fully INSIDE only cat but I do realize there is still always a chance for her to escape. My other question is about whether or not to have Lilly on monthly preventative flea and heart worm medication. Obviously the vet recommends it, but Im wondering if again it is necessary for an indoor cat? Also I am wondering if there are any risks involved that might outweighs the obvious pros. Lilly has already seen our vet once and got her testing done, as well as a dose of dewormer along with her first dose of Revolution. I just want to make sure Im doing the best I can for my Lilly, with all the other cats most decisions were already made for me! Thank you for all of your input!
