Our Preventative Healthcare Plans allow our attending veterinarians to offer a reward program, based on professional services, for preventative screening. Your veterinary team will evaluate your pet’s predominant breed, age, medical history, lifestyle, and condition to create a Health Risk Assessment (HRA)—identifying your pet’s risk for potential disease. During this evaluation, we can have a family discussion, creating actionable items and a vaccination plan. Our goal? To guard your pet against infectious diseases, and allow us to manage other non-infectious diseases or conditions should they occur.

Components of Age and Lifestyle Program

  1. Comprehensive Physical Examination

  2. Microscopic Fecal Flotation Exam

  3. Urine Chemistry

  4. Annual Healthcare Planning (Based on Breed, Medical History, and Lifestyle)

Adult Indoor Cats – Healthcare Information

Characteristics: Adult cats are an average of 28-36yrs old in human years. They are more sensible than juvenile cats and are loyal to their families. Adults are more independent than before, but can develop new behaviors due to phobias or boredom.

Prone to: Obesity, little pan disorders, phobias, emerging skin conditions, food-related allergies, otitis, early urological problems, behavioral conditions, dental disorders

In addition to healthcare: Indoor cats need new enrichment to keep fit since their environment does not typically change, and training them to exercise on their own can be difficult. Plan on re-assessing your cat's home enrichment and activity if your cat lives indoors. Renew all accessories every few years such as food puzzles, safe scratching items, etc.

Elevated safe zones in the house where your cat can rest away from people/other animals and a litter pan per cat plus one should help minimize phobias and litter pan aversion. Consider a window seat or shelf to allow indoor cats to access to sunshine. Maintain grooming & nutrition regimens appropriate for your adult cat’s lifestyle and energy needs. Keep oral hygiene in mind. Plan for a separate dental exam each year of life after year 5. Bringing a travel crate into the living space and using Feliway or fear-free items aids in socializing your pet and will discourage travel-aversion.
