Keeping Your Cat Healthy-Cat Hospital Wichita KS-Cimarron Animal Hospital

You’ve given your cat or kitten a loving home, but the responsibility of pet ownership doesn’t end there! It’s important to keep your cat healthy by taking him or her to the vet clinic for routine examinations. Cats are independent animals, which gives the false impression that they need less care than dogs. This is maybe why twice as many cats never visit the animal hospital for check-ups. The veterinarians of our cat hospital Wichita, Kansas want to make sure your pet stays healthy and happy!

What Should You Expect When Visiting Our Cat Hospital Wichita, Kansas?

You should take your cat to the vet clinic at least once a year. If you have an older animal, then more frequent visits might be necessary. Our veterinarians evaluate and discuss your cat’s behavior, nutrition, and home environment. Cimarron Animal Hospital will conduct a physical examination of your cat’s: weight, muscle tone, coat, fur, skin, ears, eyes, mouth, teeth, gums, joints, abdomen, spine, heart, lungs, and underneath the tail. In this way, our veterinarians will be able to evaluate your pet's current health, and detect any conditions that might become serious in the future. Taking preventative action by treating diseases and parasites early on can save your pet’s life.

It’s important not to distract your cat or the veterinarian during the physical examination. Save questions and comments until after it’s completed. Your veterinarian will then discuss a plan to keep your cat healthy, and/or any treatment options that might be needed. Ask the vet questions such as: Is my cat the right weight? Were there any abnormalities? How often should I exam my cat at home?
