Regular preventive care will keep your cat healthy for a long lifetime to spend with you and your family. Preventive care plays a vital role in the early detection of any future health issues, and is critical in preventing illness and disease. By establishing a baseline of health early on, we can measure changes in your cat over time, enabling us to detect the onset of diseases sooner when treatments are most effective.
Our feline exams include a thorough physical examination that includes an evaluation of your cat’s coat, skin, eyes, ears, nose, throat, and internal organ systems. At our hospital, your cat will also receive an individualized vaccination plan that caters to his or her needs based on factors such as breed, physical condition, and lifestyle.
During your cat’s professional dental exam, we will perform a thorough oral examination and dental cleaning for your cat. For more information about the dental care provided by our veterinarians, please visit our dental care page.
Our veterinarians will conduct a fecal exam each year to check for the presence of harmful parasites. We can also provide you with recommendations, and supply safe and effective preventative treatments for heartworm, ticks, and fleas based on your pet’s needs and lifestyle.
Cultivating a balanced diet and nutrition plan is also an important part of preventive care for your cat. During a wellness exam, we will assess your cat's weight so we can recommend any necessary modifications in their diet or exercise. Learn more about our nutritional counseling services.
The annual exam is also the perfect opportunity to speak with our veterinarians about any concerns you may have about your cat’s health. We will discuss topics such as vaccines, dental care, nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle or age related changes.
