What's in a feline wellness exam? Do our "healthy" cats need them too?

Your cat’s yearly (or twice yearly, for older cats) visit to the vet is an important part of their overall health and wellness plan. Remember, a year is a LONG time in a cat’s life!

Here you can address any questions or concerns with your vet, and your doctor will perform a hands-on, full body tip of nose to tip of tail examination.

Nutrition and behavior are also addressed, allowing us to make any modifications or recommendations for your pet to live their healthiest and happiest life.

Not to be forgotten – vaccinations and parasite control are part of our yearly visits with your pet. Because we live in a high-risk area, we will ask about your pet's exposure to fleas, ticks, heartworms, and intestinal parasites. We will develop an individualized treatment/preventive plan to address these issues.

Additional testing may also be recommended to diagnose/verify a health problem if any abnormalities are found during your pet’s examination.

What about our “healthy” cats?

Do they still need regular examinations? You bet!

We must remember that it’s in our cat’s DNA to hide any pain or sickness. This type of coping mechanism is what helped them survive in the wild – it’s an evolutionary thing.

Once pain or illness manifests itself into actually showing itself in our cats, the unfortunate reality is that it’s very likely it’s been going on for some time.

 A regular wellness exam ensures the health of your pet, and saves you heartache and any financial surprises down the road.
