Comprehensive Preventative Care for Felines

The focus of Advanced Care Veterinary Hospital's preventative care for cats is to ensure they have the support and resources they need to maintain a healthy life. Some of the steps required to meet this goal may include nutrition, proper hygiene and the right level of stimulation. However, one of the most important benefits of an excellent preventative care plan is the ability to detect diseases or illnesses early and treat them before they become a more significant problem.  

Many feline diseases are easier to treat in earlier stages. Without the adequate level of care throughout this crucial period, some illnesses may reach a point where treatment is no longer an option. Unfortunately, many cats are good at hiding any problems or symptoms they may be experiencing – making preventative care even more critical. Some of the most vital components of a great preventative care plan for cats include: 

  • Semi-Annual Physical Examinations

  • Blood and Urine Analysis

  • Annual or Semi-Annual Dental Cleaning

  • Parasite Control and Vaccinations

  • Flea and Tick Treatments

  • Grooming and Hygiene

  • Nutrition Coaching

  • Ongoing Education for Pet Owners

Why Does Preventative Care for Cats Matter?

Although a cat's needs may vary from year to year, the underlying emphasis on preventative care should be a priority to ensure the best outcome possible. Kittens have very different healthcare needs than senior cats; however, working with an experienced veterinarian can simplify this process and provide the best approach to maintaining optimal health consistently – no matter what unique issues a cat may be facing. 

Preventive care is essential for any pet to ensure their health and happiness are kept a priority. Most cats do not receive the level of veterinary care they need and deserve. Veterinarians understand the usefulness of the preventative health care guidelines for cats developed by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) and the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and the importance of the preventative care services that are being provided. 

Feline Preventive Healthcare Guidelines represent the most advanced scientific and clinical information available designed to ensure a cat's health and quality of life remain a priority at all life stages. These guidelines also provide evidence-based medication combined with everyday best practices to empower pet owners further to ensure their cat's best interests are being met at all times.
