Annual vaccinations and 6 month wellness checkups with diagnostic tests can help reassure you that your cat is healthy and help us detect hidden diseases or conditions early. Early detection improves the prognosis of many diseases, keeps medical expenses down, and helps your cat live longer. Our cats can be very good at hiding signs that something is wrong. Subtle changes in their health or behavior are easily overlooked. Plus, depending on the disease, some cats don’t show any symptoms. Our Healthier Happier Living Longer Plans for Adults are designed to deal with ALL of this. Cats age far quicker than humans, so it is even more crucial that cats receive regular exams. Additionally, the risks of arthritis, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, hormone disorders, and kidney and liver problems all increase with age. During your cat’s wellness exam, we perform a physical assessment, checking your cat from the tip of the nose to the tip of the tail. We also make sure your cat receives annual vaccinations for infectious diseases as well as flea and heartworm preventive recommendations. We perform a diagnostic workup that may include blood, fecal, and urine tests to check for parasites and underlying diseases. Your cat’s teeth are examined and a dental care recommendation made. As your cat is nearing the senior years, it is very important to have a baseline exam and diagnostic workup to know what is normal for your pet. This allows us to keep track of any changes. We have put together several Wellness Plans for the Adult Cat. We even named them, Healthier Happier Living Longer Plans. These plans cover what you would do on an annual basis plus providing much more. Statistics show that a cat on a wellness program may live an average of over 700 days longer than one not on the same level of care. This means a better quality of life and more time to share with each other ! Because you spend the most time with your cat, you are your their expert, as well as his or her greatest advocate. Please let us know if you’ve noticed any physical or behavioral changes in your cat, as well as any other concerns you might have.
