The Cat Clinic of Niagara has a focus on preventive medicine. We try to be as proactive as possible and advise routine examination and wellness testing in order to promote early detection of potential problems. Cats are experts at hiding signs of illness. Oftentimes there may be no symptoms present or subtle changes in their health or behavior might be easily overlooked. Therefore, cats may give little or no indication as to how they are feeling. Given that felines age far quicker than humans, it becomes even more crucial for our cats to receive regular exams. The risks of arthritis, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, pancreatitis, hormone disorders, dental disease and kidney and liver problems all increase with age and this makes routine visits of utmost importance.
Bringing your cat in for an annual diagnostic and wellness checkup can help reassure you that your cat is at their optimum health and help us detect and address hidden diseases or conditions early, when they are most treatable. Early diagnosis and appropriate treatments can result in your feline living a longer, healthier life. We provide diagnostic and wellness services for your adult cat such as blood screening, fecal testing, and urinalysis, in combination with a complete physical assessment. Dental examination and care is also extremely important to overall health and longevity. Your cat’s personal yearly exam is likely to include many of these aspects and tests, and we are equipped with radiography and ultrasonography if further diagnostics are required. Because you spend the most time with your feline, you are their expert, as well as his or her greatest advocate. Please let us know if you have noticed any physical or behavioral changes in your cat, as well as any other concerns you might have.
