The Importance of Routine Wellness & Preventative Care

You want as many happy, healthy years with your cat as possible.  At Scaredy Cat Hospital, we want that, too!

That's why we place such a strong emphasis on routine wellness and preventative care.

Regular visits with us (typically once or twice a year, depending on age) allow our veterinarians to monitor your pet's health, and to practice preventative measures to protect kitty against health risks. We can also be on the lookout for early signs of any potential medical concerns -- before they become a more serious (and costly) problem for your cat.

Wellness Visits at Scaredy Cats: Three Benefits for You and Your Cat

First Benefit

No matter how well you care for kitty, s/he will encounter health problems over the years. At Scaredy Cats, our first step is to partner with you to prevent disease and give your pet a long, healthy life.

We'll start by assessing your cat's lifestyle and risk factors, and then developing an individualized approach to vaccination, nutrition, and overall health.

(See our blog post on vaccinations for more information on our customized approach.)

The second benefit of regular wellness screening is to monitor your cat's ongoing health over time. During each visit, our feline veterinarians will conduct a thorough "nose-to-toes" exam.

Based on this exam and other factors (age, pre-existing conditions, etc.), we may recommend diagnostic tests to help us identify any early risk factors.

Cats age much more quickly than humans, so as they get older, once yearly check-ups (and preferably twice yearly after age 7) increase the chances of early detection -- and positive outcomes.

Third Benefit

Finally, regular screenings offer us the opportunity to get to know you and your precious kitty even better. The more we know, the better we can treat.

Plus, your cat becomes more used to us, which makes trips to the vet much more pleasant for all involved!
