Cat Exams with a Huntington Beach, CA, Veterinarian on Our Veterinary Team
You want to keep your favorite feline around and healthy for as long as possible. One step in making this happen is to have regular cat wellness exams. Our team at Friendly Animal Hospital in Huntington Beach, CA, is here to help you preserve your cat’s pet health and wellness.
Why Does My Cat Need an Exam?
There is a way to detect potential health issues so that you can prevent them from occurring. It is called regular pet wellness exams. These exams help our veterinarians get a good look at the overall health of your cat and any potential issues that could arise. Even if your cat seems healthy and happy, there might be things lurking beneath the surface – things that our veterinarians are trained at spotting.
What to Expect during Cat Exams
Cat exams are like check-ups for humans. A veterinarian on our veterinary team will ask questions about your cat’s habits, daily life, and any issues you might have noticed. We will check vital signs, height, weight, and more to ensure that your pet’s health is up to par. We can do an examination of areas such as your cat's:
- Coat, skin, and fur
- Joints and spine
- Eyes and ears
- Teeth, mouth, and gums
In some cases, lab work might be ordered if there are signs of illnesses or potential health problems. At each exam, a veterinarian on our veterinary team can help provide any necessary vaccinations. These are integral to your cat’s health, as they can protect them from potentially fatal illnesses and diseases.
How to Prepare
There’s nothing to worry about with your cat exam and no major preparations need to be made. You may be asked questions about your cat, including litter box habits, dietary habits, and similar topics. If you’ve noticed any differences in your cat, be prepared to explain them the best you can so that your vet can take any necessary actions.
It’s also wise to be ready with questions you might have, such as how to manage undesirable behavior, grooming questions, and more. A veterinarian on our team will be happy to provide guidance in any area to support your pet ownership.
