Wellness Exams - Cat

Preventative Health Care

Regular office visits are one of the most important things you can do to keep your pet happy and healthy. The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) recommends annual wellness exams at a minimum. As your pet ages, we recommend multiple wellness exams throughout the year to detect any health changes as soon as they occur. Early detection and management of health problems will help to ensure that your pet will love a long, healthy and active life.

Wellness Exams

During a wellness exam, our veterinary team will start out by taking your pet’s weight, temperature, heart rate, and breathing rate. We will get a complete history of your pet including eating habits, exercise, behavior, and any concerns you may have. Our veterinarians will perform a comprehensive examination of your pet from nose to tail. We will evaluate your pet’s health history to determine if your pet is in need of our “routine” care, such as heartworm testing, parasite prevention, and vaccines. Based on the history and exam, we may recommend additional testing such as evaluating blood or urine, taking x-rays, or other more specific tests.
