Importance of Wellness Exams for your cat

Cats are very good at hiding any pain or problems they are having so even if your cat does not go outside or does not appear to have any medical problems a yearly wellness exam is still important. Veterinarians recommend regular wellness exams for the same reason your physician and dentist recommend them – if you can detect a problem in its early stages, it’s more likely to be treated and resolved with less expense, less difficulty and better success.

As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Vaccinations, and routine deworming are important components of wellness care and can prevent diseases that are not only life-threatening, but very expensive to treat.

Your veterinarian can recommend a wellness program based on your pet’s age, lifestyle and overall health.
