Schedule An Examination For Your Cat
How often should your feline friend get an exam? The veterinarians at CountrySide recommend cat examinations once a year for adult cats, and twice a year for senior cats. Kittens will need more frequent exams, so you can gain all the needed information for general care, vaccinations, spaying or neutering surgeries, and dietary changes as they mature into an adult cat.
During Your Cat’s Examination
When your cat comes in for a visit, we will take the time to analyze them from nose to tail. In addition, we listen to their heartbeat and breathing. Your veterinarian will inquire about any changes in their recent behavior or physical symptoms. If any recent changes have occurred, we will suggest tips to either appropriately correct their behavior or diagnose a possible ailment. If they have developed a health problem, we will discuss next steps for follow-up exams.
Your cat veterinarian will provide best tips for caring for your cat, however, you can take good preventative measures at home, including:
- Feeding your cat 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.
During your kitten or young cat’s exam, your veterinarian will examine them for illness, discuss needed vaccinations, and check for appropriate weight and development as they grow. We will also recommend a proper time for a spaying or neutering procedure and how to manage and maintain her diet, dental health, exercise, and training, how to check for parasites, and encourage good behavior.

Adult Cat Examinations
Adult cats should see a veterinarian once annually. Schedule a routine checkup to get dietary, dental, medication, and vaccination recommendations from our veterinarians. 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 them experiencing discomfort or exhibiting changes in behavior, talk with your veterinarian as soon as possible.
As they age, there are several steps you can take to make them more comfortable, (as recommended by your veterinarian), including altering their diet, monitoring their weight and exercise, watching closely for parasites, or making any necessary changes to their environment. Discuss concerns or observations with your veterinarian.Call to Schedule a Cat Exam
