Yes. When done before the first heat cycle, it greatly reduces their risk of cancer. It helps reduce the tendency to wander/fight/spread infections. It helps reduce the development of inappropriate behavior.

Vaccination: If your pet is older than 16 weeks, they will receive two sets of vaccines and intestinal parasite tests. The second set of vaccines/intestinal parasite test needs to be done at 3-4 weeks after the first set.

Heartworm Prevention: Heartworms are a preventable disease that can be fetal. Prevention should be given once a month, every month, for your pet's life. Prevention should be given whether your pet is 100% indoors or not.
Research has shown that indoor cats are just as likely to get heartworm disease and there is no treatment for cats.

This blood work allows us to evaluate your pet’s internal health. In one year, your pet has aged the equivalent of sevenhuman years. Early detection provides the best treatment options for recovery. One in ten outwardly healthy pets have hidden disease revealed with diagnostic testing.

Yes – Every year your pet’s oral health will be evaluated. Dental cleanings are necessary to prevent gum erosion, tooth decay, and even bone loss. The bacteria found in an unhealthy mouth have access to the pet’s bloodstream and can adversely affect vital organs like the heart and kidneys. Dental Health products recommended.

*Intestinal parasite testing is performed every 6 months in order to detect infestation. If your pet tests positive, it will be dewormed with the appropriate medication. Intestinal parasites can create serious health problems for your pet and family members if left undetected and/or untreated. Heartworm and Flea Prevention: Heartworms are a preventable, fatal disease. Prevention should be applied once a month, every month, for the pet’s entire life whether it is an indoor or outdoor pet. Advantage Multi is a liquid applied topically to the skin, between the shoulder blades. It not only prevents heartworm infection (for which there is no treatment in cats), but also treats/prevents: ear mites, fleas, sarcoptic mange, and intestinal hookworms and roundworms. We also carry Heartgard chewable tablets for those kitties that prefer a chewable tablet.

**Annual lab work not only gives us a chance to evaluate organ function changes, but if your pet is in need of a procedure under sedation (i.e. dental, growth removal, spay, neuter, etc.), blood work also allows us to evaluate how well your pet will be able to metabolize the anesthetic. Abnormal results may warrant delaying the procedure until healthy, using different anesthetics, or even supporting the pet with IV fluids.
