Schedule A Cat Checkup
How often should your feline friend get a checkup? The veterinarians at Countryside Vets recommend cat checkups once a year for adult cats, and checkups twice a year for senior cats. Kittens will need more frequent checkups, so you can gain all the needed information for general care, vaccinations, spaying or neutering surgeries, and dietary changes as he or she matures into an adult cat.
During Your Cat’s Checkup
Our veterinarians are also cat owners, which means that we take great care to treat your pet as we would our own. The team at Countryside Veterinary Services has provided decades of expert veterinary care to the Appleton, WI community, treating not only cats, but also dogs, cows, and horses. Our team loves working with domesticated and livestock animals!
When your cat comes in for a visit, we will take the time to analyze him from nose to tail. In addition, we listen to your cat’s heartbeat and breathing. Your vet will inquire about any changes in your feline’s recent behavior or physical symptoms. If any recent changes have occurred, we will suggest tips to either appropriately correct your cat’s behavior or diagnose a possible ailment. If your cat has developed a health problem, we will discuss next steps for follow-up checkups.
Your vet will provide best tips for caring for your cat, however, you can take good preventative measures at home, including:
- Feeding your feline high quality pet food, in appropriate portions depending on breed, size, and age.
- Periodically checking your cat for parasites like ticks, worms, and fleas.
- Protecting your cat from harmful diseases by regularly bringing in your furry friend for vaccinations and booster shots.

Adult Cat Checkups
Adult cats should see a veterinarian once annually. Schedule a routine checkup to get dietary, dental, medication, and vaccination recommendations from our vets. We take time during the checkup to also look into potential illnesses or behavioral changes. As your feline friend approaches the age of seven or older, we recommend you start bringing him in twice a year for cat care services. Geriatric cats tend to develop diseases like cancer, diabetes, joint or bone disease, liver disease, heart disease, and other pervasive ailments. If you notice your cat experiencing discomfort or exhibiting changes in behavior, talk with your vet as soon as possible.
As your cats ages, there are several steps you can take to make her more comfortable, (as recommended by your veterinarian), including altering her diet, monitoring her weight and exercise, watching closely for parasites, or making any necessary changes to her environment. Discuss concerns or observations with your veterinarian.Schedule Cat Checkup
