Vets on Parker recommend bringing in your cat for a yearly health check to ensure your pet lives its best possible life.

During these check-ups, one of our experienced vets will evaluate your cat from nose to tail and ask you lots of questions to build up a complete picture of your cat’s health.

These comprehensive examinations include:

  • Ear Exam
  • Eye Exam
  • Rectal exam
  • Dental exam
  • Neurologic evaluation
  • Cardiovascular evaluation
  • Weight & nutrition counselling
  • Coat & skin evaluation
  • Abdominal palpation
  • Urinary system evaluation
  • Reproductive system
  • Musculoskeletal evaluation
  • Lung evaluation
  • Behavioural counselling

Why every year?

Bringing your cat in for a yearly check-up is important because in the early stages, many illnesses don’t have any visible symptoms. Cats are also masters at concealing signs of pain and discomfort, so the only way to ensure your cat is as healthy as it looks is to bring them in for an annual check-up with a professional vet who knows what to look for.

In many instances, annual check-ups can be used to diagnose many serious health conditions in their early stages. Early diagnosis and treatment often means a better prognosis, a faster recovery, and fewer vet bills.

Once your cat turns seven they are considered a senior and at this age, we recommend a check-up once every six months as older animals are more prone to illness and can deteriorate quickly if certain conditions are left untreated.
