For Cats


Wellness Care

Wellness care for your furry family member is essential to ensure they live longer, happier, and healthier. At VETsmart Animal Hospital, we believe the key to keeping your pet happy is comprehensive exams by our veterinarian, discussion of vaccinations to protect your pet, and routine lab work and testing for internal parasites. Cats are very stoic and don’t always let us know what they need. Scheduling an annual wellness exam for your cat allows our team to better keep track of their health. Annual wellness checks can catch health problems early, while they’re still treatable. Wellness checks also ensure that your cat is eating properly and their skin, teeth, and gums are healthy.


Annual Check-ups for Healthy Cats

We understand that you have a busy life. When it’s time for your cat’s yearly check-up, we are available to examine your cat by appointment during our regular business hours. In order to meet our mission of emphasizing convenience, we offer drop off appointments through our Pet Drop Off Concierge Service that allows you to leave your pet with us and we’ll call you when they are ready to go.


Our annual wellness exam appointments go over the following items:

  Comprehensive Physical Exam from head to tail

  Vaccinations necessary to protect your cat based on their lifestyle

  Annual Intestinal Parasite Screens

  Discussion of needed flea and tick preventatives to protect your cat

  Nutrition management


Before we administer any vaccinations, we do require that your cat undergo a physical examination by our veterinarian. We take your cat’s health seriously and keep thorough records to ensure that they get consistent care with every visit.
