Annual wellness exams for your cat are the best way to keep your pet as healthy as possible. Bringing your cat in for regular wellness exams is the very best you can do to assure longer life and the highest quality of life for your feline friend.
One of the most important components of your cat’s health care is vaccinations. However, many vaccines may neither be necessary nor prudent for your cat to receive. At Kingsbrook Animal Hospital, we conduct a risk analysis of your pet each time they visit to determine what, if any, vaccines are needed. Each patient’s lifestyle (based on their activities and factors such as age, breed and medical history) is taken into consideration to create a plan which is tailored for your pet. We also offer alternatives to vaccines when possible, such as titers, to see if protection is still being provided from vaccines you pet has received in the past.
Internal and external parasites can pose a serious health risk to both your cat and your family. During the wellness exam, our veterinarians will conduct a fecal analysis to ensure that your cat is parasite-free. We can also give you recommendations for monthly preventative treatments for fleas and ticks when indicated.
We will discuss your cat’s diet and weight at each exam to ensure they are getting the nutrition they need and are maintaining a healthy weight for their age and lifestyle. It is important to review these facts as nutritional deficiencies and significant changes in weight could indicate an underlying health condition.
Kingsbrook provides professional dental cleanings to help keep your cat’s teeth clean and healthy. During the dental evaluation, we will inspect your cat’s teeth and gums for tartar, plaque, tooth decay, infections, and signs of tooth weakness. We can also discuss at-home dental care, and the various methods for maintaining your cat’s oral health between cleanings.

Thank you to Dr Cook, Morgan, Katie, and everyone who took such amazing care of our Ash last week. We were totally at ease leaving her in their care. I'm thrilled we moved both our pets to Kingsbrook, and love knowing they'll always be in great hands.
