Feline Health Care

A healthy cat is a happy cat! We believe good feline health care starts with wellness care. We recommend that all cats undergo a complete wellness exam at least once a year. Wellness exams include a physical exam, customized vaccine schedules that reflect your cat’s individual needs, proper food/nutrition and screening tests for diseases such as feline leukemia and feline FIV. Frequent routine exams help us identify and treat diseases quickly.

Your cat’s annual exam provides an opportunity for you to discuss your cat’s health with one of our veterinarians. Our veterinarians are available to discuss everything from dental care, arthritis and nutrition to immunizations, lifestyle changes, and any other topics of concern.

Developing a comprehensive health profile for your cat

Most importantly, we do a complete examination of your cat which allows us to develop a comprehensive health profile for your cat. This information aids us in future treatment and helps us identify medical problems at an early stage, before they develop into serious conditions that are difficult and expensive to treat.

We see a variety of cat medical problems, but the most common complaints include:

  • Urinary tract disease
  • Skin problems—itchy skin, hair loss, allergies
  • Dental issues
  • Ear infections
  • Fleas
  • Increased drinking
  • Loss of appetite, decreased appetite
  • Abnormal urinating
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Sneezing/coughing
  • Limping, difficulty rising, walking or climbing stairs

If you notice your cat is exhibiting any of these symptoms, please call us as soon as you can to arrange for an appointment with us.
