The Importance of Wellness Exams

The Cat Practice is concerned about your feline family members. Did you know that indoor cats can be susceptible to certain diseases and parasites, just like outdoor cats? These include heart disease, kidney disease, heartworm disease, arthritis, urinary problems, feline “asthma,” dental disease, thyroid disease, diabetes, intestinal parasites, and external parasites (fleas). Also keep in mind that cats are masters at hiding illness, often until they are very sick, which is why annual feline wellness exams are so important. Wellness exams allow our doctors to examine your feline friend from nose to tail and determine if advanced diagnostic care is necessary (blood work, X-rays, etc.) or if treatment is recommended.

Please call The Cat Practice today at (504) 525-6369 to schedule a wellness exam for your kitty so we can spot diseases early, before major problems arise. With an annual wellness exam, you can increase the chances of your cat living a long, healthy life.
