Wellness Care for Cats

Because our veterinarians believe strongly in prevention and early disease detection, we recommend twice yearly exams for all pets in. In addition to these vaccines, our veterinary team recommends including regular blood work to identify diseases. We also recommend checking your pet’s stool twice yearly to identify intestinal parasites which can affect both their health and the health of your family.

What to Expect During Your Pet’s Wellness Exams

At your pet’s bi-annual pet wellness exams, our veterinarians will do a thorough physical exam, dental exam, discuss your pet’s lifestyle, answer any questions you may have about your pet’s physical well being, behavior, and nutrition. They will make recommendations for parasite prevention and specific diagnostics or treatment based on your pet’s needs.

Our veterinarians will decide with you which vaccines your pet needs based on their lifestyle. For cats, our veterinary team recommends the FVRCP to prevent feline rhino tracheitis, caliciviral, and panleukopenia, in addition to rabies. We offer 3 year options for these vaccines for pets who qualify. Additionally, we carry the feline leukemia vaccine. Kittens begin their vaccine series between 8 and 10 weeks of age.
