Prolong Your Cat's Life
Sheboygan Animal Hospital is committed to providing your cat with a long and healthy life. The corner stone of good Feline Preventive Care is a thorough physical exam at least once a year. Remember that an annual exam for your cat is the equivalent to you seeing your doctor every 5-7 years.
Annual preventive care for cats typically includes:
- At least one annual Physical Examination:
- Ear and Eye Examination
- Cardiopulmonary (Heart and Lung) analysis
- Abdominal Palpation
- Dental Exam
- Dermatological Exam
- Musculoskeletal Evaluation
- Vaccination recommendations include core vaccines Rabies and Feline Distemper. Your veterinarian may also suggest the Feline Leukemia vaccine for outdoor cats.
- Parasite Control Products to treat or prevent intestinal parasites, fleas and ticks. Round worms can be transmitted to humans, so controlling these parasites protects your cat and also your family.
- Diagnostic Testing to check for Feline Leukemia and/or Feline AIDS (Felv/FIV), heartworms or other internal parasites and early stages of diseases which cannot be detected during a physical exam.
- Behavioral Counseling: Make sure to ask your veterinarian any questions you have regarding your cat's behavior. Changes in behavior can sometimes indicate developing physical problems. Your veterinarian will be happy to answer your questions or direct you to another staff member who can help you.
Your veterinarian will also discuss other services, such as dental care or microchipping, that can lead to a longer and healthier life for your cat.
