Feline Preventative Care
Your cat is a beloved member of your family, and you want to make sure that they are happy and healthy for many years to come. The surest way to do this is through preventative care. At Southern Hills Veterinary Hospital in Tulsa, we provide comprehensive annual exams in order to help prevent any illnesses or injuries or to diagnose and treat diseases as early as possible. The following are just some of the animal care services we offer for your feline friend:
Dental: Although many owners aren’t aware, the cleanliness of your cat’s teeth and mouth can affect their overall health. Our animal hospital provides annual teeth cleanings to assure that they’re healthy.
Nutrition: Just like humans, it’s important for your cat to have a proper nutritional diet. This will ensure that they grow and develop into a healthy feline and age appropriately.
Behavior: Since your cat is unable to talk (at least not with words) odd behavior can be an indication of a medical issue. Our veterinarians will help determine the cause and determine the proper treatment.
Grooming: Let’s face it, no matter how much your cat cleans itself, it still gets dirty. Grooming and washing will help them maintain a healthy coat free of infections, mange, and matting.
Vaccinations: Keeping on top of your cat’s current vaccinations is the most efficient way to prevent diseases and infections.
Annual Exams: When you bring your cat into our animal hospital for an annual exam, we will evaluate every aspect of their health and will recommend necessary treatments to have them be the healthiest they can be.
As your cat begins to reach older age, preventative care becomes even more crucial to overall well-being. Southern Hills Veterinary hospital suggests exams twice a year since they are prone to more diseases and illnesses and are harder to treat.
