Our feline companions are unable to tell us how they are feeling, so it is important that you bring them in for preventative care and wellness exams on a regular basis.
Our wellness exam is an opportunity to develop a picture of your cat’s overall health. They also help us to spot potential medical issues before they become serious concerns. During these visits you can ask important questions about your cat’s health, habits and daily care. No question is too small or too silly, and it is our pleasure to address your concerns. We want you to be comfortable and informed in all aspects of your cat’s health and lifestyle. We will provide you information about home healthcare for your cat and offer important advice and new information on the care of your particular type and breed of cat.
A preventative exam includes:
Performing laboratory test (urine/blood), if necessary
Screening for parasites
Consulting about your cat’s behavior, appetite, exercise habits, and regular activities at home
Discussing heartworm, flea and tick parasite control
Listening to your cat’s heart and lungs
Checking your cat’s teeth, gums and mouth
Evaluating your cat’s eyes
Examining your cat’s ears and ear canals
Checking your cat’s lymph nodes, abdomen and skin
Feeling the joints and muscles
