Feline Care

We are a Certified Cat-Friendly Practice, as determined by guidelines set by the American Association of Feline Practitioners. Most healthy pets only see us a few times a year, but these visits are extremely important in the effort to keep your pet healthy and for early detection of potential problems. At each wellness visit, we’ll do a full physical exam, check stool samples for intestinal parasites, give vaccines, and recommend monthly parasite protection. See the tabs below for our detailed recommendations for each stage of your pet’s life.
