Preventative Care for Cats

The proactive approach to feline veterinary care

Preventative care is a cat’s first line of defense.  Both indoor or outdoor, cats need regular wellness exams—but statistics show that after their initial kitten vaccinations, pet owners tend to take cats to the vet about half as often as dogs. Annual exams help keep your cat healthy by preventing, diagnosing and treating disease in its early stages, often before any noticeable symptoms begin.

One of the main reasons cat owners cite for not taking their cats to the vet is that their cats hate it—often they’re so fearful they can be very hard to handle. But there are things you can do to cut down on the stress and anxiety for you and your cat. Read more on our blog for some helpful tips for stress free visits to the vet with cats. 

Preventive Health Measures

Annual Veterinary Exams:

Roseway Veterinary Hospital’s comprehensive annual exams thoroughly evaluate general appearance, skin, lymph nodes and mucous membranes, as well as musculoskeletal, respiratory, nervous, circulatory, digestive and genital/urinary systems.


Updated vaccinations are a highly effective way to prevent many common diseases and infections like feline leukemia, distemper and rabies.

Dental Care:

Oral health is an important part of your pet’s life; annual teeth cleanings are the best method to maintain and improve dental wellbeing.

Parasite Control:

Prevention and eradication is a simple and efficient process when anti-parasitic medication is used regularly.

Proper Nutrition:

Proper nutrition supports all of your cat’s bodily processes, bolstering their immune system and ensuring normal development. Many prescriptions foods are offered to aid in the treatment of various health conditions.

Behavioral Evaluation:

Changes in mood or behavior are often symptoms of underlying medical conditions. Identifying these shifts help to isolate and treat the root cause.

Senior Animals

Preventative care becomes more significant for aging cats. Roseway Veterinary Hospital recommends increasing exams to at least twice a year and completing regular labwork for elderly animals. As pets get older they are prone to many age-related diseases that are increasingly necessary to diagnose and treat. Many preventive health measures must be adjusted to better suit the medical needs of senior animals.
