Our doctor and/or veterinary technician will complete a thorough examination of your pet on an annual basis. Pets over the age of 3 should have bi-annual exams since they are aging at a minimum of 7 years to every one of ours. If your pet is having any health issues, please let us know during your visit.
FEL-O-VAX Lv-K IV + CALICIVAX VACCINE
For kittens/cats - 10 weeks or older
2 boosters are required initially (2-3 weeks apart), then given annually.
This combination vaccine will prevent against Panleukopenia (feline distemper), Rhinotracheitis (upper respiratory infection) Chlamydia, Calicivirus (upper respiratory infections) and Feline leukemia (LvK) is a form of cancer in cats. Cat bites by an infected cat can readily transmit infection. Excluding cat bites, FeLV is not a highly contagious virus, and transmission generally requires a prolonged period of close contact between infected and susceptible cats. Other routes of transmission can include close contact activities such as mating, mutual grooming, and sharing of litter trays and food bowls. FeLV is usually fatal. Studies have shown that 80-90% of FeLV-infected cats will die within 3 to 4 years of initial diagnosis.
For kittens/cats - 12 weeks or older
Rabies vaccines must be given before 6 months of age to ensure your pet is protected. After the initial rabies vaccine, your pet should receive a rabies vaccine at least every three years. Requirements for the rabies vaccine vary from state to state.
INTESTINAL PARASITE SCREENING
This screening helps us determine if your pet has any intestinal worms and other microscopic parasites. Some parasites can be passed from your pet to you or your children. Therefore, it is important to have your your cats feces checked every year.
Kidney disease is the leading cause of death in geriatric patients. Many cats show no signs or symptoms of having a problem. Urinalysis can also show signs of early kidney, liver problems, bleeding disorders, high blood sugar or urinary tract infections.
FELINE TESTING (Feline Leukemia, FIV & Heartworm)
This examination of your pet's blood will test for Feline Leukemia, Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) and heartworms. We recommend any kitten/cat that is newly acquired, sick or any cat that is "at risk" (exposed to unvaccinated cats or any out door kittens/cats) be tested on an annual basis.
HEARTWORM PARASITE PREVENTIVE
TO BE GIVEN YEAR ROUND
Heartworms are passed when an infected mosquito bites your cat. Heartworms are preventable when a monthly preventive is given year round, even in the winter months. Mosquitoes can live in your house throughout the winter and feed on your cat during that time. There is not current treatment for cats with heartworms. In addition, the heartworm preventives that we carry have a broad-spectrum intestinal parasite treatment and controller, which will keep your pet free of most intestinal parasites year round.
WELLNESS OR SENIOR SCREENING
Just like with people, your pet's health will change as it ages. Since pets age faster than people do, major health changes can happen quickly. The annual screening consists of blood work (10 blood chemistries, complete CBC & electrolyte panel) that will check your pet's liver, kidneys, pancreas, blood sugar, minerals and electrolytes. Uncovering disease before it's too late will help your pet live a long and healthy life.
