Cat Preventative Care

Cat Preventative CareEvery cat needs a thorough examination and vaccination schedule based on their age and lifestyle. In addition, parasite prevention for heart worms and intestinal parasites keep indoor, as well as outside cats protected.

A Junior Wellness Panel is advised for regular health monitoring of all cats less than 6 years of age. Junior Wellness testing allows our doctors to detect problems before becoming a major concern or greater threat to your cat’s health. Junior wellness also establishes baselines that are important in monitoring your cat’s health trends. Junior Wellness testing includes:

Indoor & Outdoor Cats: Kidney and liver values, Blood protein levels, Red blood cell, white blood cell and platelet levels.
Outdoor cats: In addition to the above, cats that visit outdoors are advised to have a Feline leukemia (FeLV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) test performed every 6-12 months.

Senior Wellness Panels should be performed annually on all cats over 7 years of age for routine monitoring, unless a problem should arise. Senior comprehensive exams include the above-mentioned blood tests plus thoracic and abdominal radiographs to check for possible organ enlargement or tumors. Did you know that obesity is a true disease process which can lead to complications that jeopardize your cat’s health? Conditions such as diabetes mellitus, osteoarthritis, cardiac disease, and respiratory disease all develop more readily in obese cats. During each veterinary exam, your cat’s body condition score is evaluated. If your cat is found to be overweight or obese, diagnostic testing may be advised to rule out underlying problems. Personalized weight management programs may include special therapeutic diets and an exercise plan. Weekly to monthly clinic weigh-ins are important to check your cat’s progress and stay on track.
