Early detection of illness is the key to keeping your cat healthy.  Our physical exams include a head-to-tail assessment:

  • Check weight, temperature, and body condition score.

  • Assess the eyes and ears.

  • Evaluate the size of the lymph nodes.

  • Perform a complete dental evaluation to assess the health of the teeth and gums.

  • Listen to the heart and lungs.

  • Feel the abdomen to evaluate the size and texture of internal organs including the liver, spleen, kidneys, and intestines.

  • Assess the skin and hair coat.

  • Evaluate the muscles and joints.

After the examination, we carefully document our findings and give you our recommendations for any health problems we find, including advice on nutrition and behavior.
