Annual Cat Care logoCats are very good at masking their pain. Bringing your cat to the veterinarian for a physical exam every year is the smartest and easiest way to detect illnesses or diseases, expecially before they become severe or costly.

Your Veterinarian Will Check...

  • muscular and skeletal health by feeling for healthy muscle mass and joint pain.

  • neurologic system – it could indicate birth defects in younger cats, and cognitive issues in older cats.

  • appropriate weight and  lifestyle for your cat's age.

  • lymph nodes – swollen nodes can indicate a wound, virus, infection or some other illness.

  • vital signs (temperature, pulse and respiration) – an abnormal reading could indicate illness.

  • skin and coat condition for growths, infection wounds and overall skin health.

Pet Exams for Cats

     
 

Bring Your Cat to the Veterinarian Every Year for a Clean Bill of Health and Peace of Mind

Your cat can't tell us what's wrong. But routine physical exams can help your veterinarian detect any problems or diseases you might not have otherwise picked up on, including heart murmurs, tumors, enlarged organs, cataracts, ear infections, ear mites, dental and gum disease, skin issues and allergies.
