Keep Your Cat Healthy Through Annual Wellness Exams

All Creatures Veterinary Services strongly recommends an annual wellness exam for every cat. As cats age, their bodies begin to undergo many of the same types of changes that occur in their human owners.  Changes in metabolism, musculoskeletal and sensory organs are common and can often be significantly improved when diagnosed early. Depending on the age and general health of your cat, we may suggest more frequent visits or additional laboratory testing. Regular wellness exams allow us to keep your cat as healthy as possible.  All Creatures Veterinary Services recommends an annual wellness exam for all cats, and a semi-annual exam for cats with health conditions or senior cats.   During your cat’s annual wellness exam, our veterinarians will:

All exams include:

  • Perform a physical examination of your cat
  • Perform a cardiac evaluation (listen to their heart)
  • Examine ears and eyes
  • Perform a dental evaluation (visually examine your cat’s teeth and gums for plaque and tartar, tooth weakness and decay)
  • Examine skin and coat for any unusual lumps, bumps, swelling, or infection
  • Abdominal Organ Evaluation
  • Lymph Node Evaluation
  • Perform a Musculoskeletal evaluation of muscles, bones, joints and back
  • Fecal analysis (internal parasite detection)
  • Vaccinations as recommended according to your cat’s individual risk of exposure
  • Heartworm testing
  • Feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency virus blood test, depending on your cat’s lifestyle
  • Consultation regarding flea, tick and other parasite prevention according to your cat’s lifestyle

Please bring the following items with you to ensure the best possible experience at our clinic:
