Feline Wellness Care
Your cat’s annual wellness exam is an opportunity for you to discuss any concerns you have about your cat’s health to prevent illness, diseases, and other conditions. During the wellness exam, we will discuss vaccines, nutrition, allergies, dental care (including at-home dental care), and other issues that may be affecting your cat such as lifestyle or age related changes.

- A full review of your cat’s medical history
- Assessment of your cat’s current health condition
- A complete physical examination
- A thorough dental evaluation
- Parasite screening
- Personalized vaccinations
- Advice on heartworm, flea, and tick preventatives
- Addressing your cat’s nutritional needs, behavioral issues, or other concerns
Preparing Your Cat for Their Visit
For the safety of your cat, they should be transported in a secure carrier. Help your cat become comfortable with the carrier during the days prior to his or her appointment with us by placing it in a room where they spend a lot of time. Adding familiar, soft bedding and placing treats, catnip, or toys inside the carrier will also help your cat relax. Note that it may take days or weeks for your cat to adjust to the carrier.
If your cat is particularly anxious during the card ride, you may want to cover the carrier with a blanket or towel. Some cats like to see what's happening, while others prefer it when the carrier is covered. See which option your cat likes best by placing them inside the carrier while transporting them around the house, both covered and uncovered.
