Annual Wellness Exams
Cats age much faster than we do, and a lot can happen in a year. The doctor will look at your cat’s ears, teeth, and skin; ascultate (listen to) the heart and lungs; and palpate (feel) the abdomen and thyroid for any abnormalities. We do recommend annual exams so we can ensure your cat stays an integral part of your family as long as possible.
Many cats over fifteen years old will require semi annual exams since changes can occur much quicker as cats age.
Our veterinarians examine each cat individually and tailor their vaccination protocol to your cat’s lifestyle and age.
Ninety percent of cats over age eight have dental disease, which can lead to heart and kidney disease. Our doctors will recommend when to schedule a dental cleaning.
Routine Blood Screening
As with middle-aged and older people, a range of illnesses can occur as your cat ages. Being alert to changes in your cat’s behavior and habits and seeking veterinary care will help ensure early detection and timely treatment. In order for us to fully care for your cat comprehensive blood testing is necessary. It should be done yearly for cats over 8 years of age and biannually for geriatric cats (13 and up).
