A full comprehensive clinical examination normally carried out by your Veterinary Surgeon and included as part of the cost in your cat's annual vaccination. Your Vet will also perform an examination, when you take your cat for a consultation on any other issue or concern with their health.

A full comprehensive clinical examination normally carried out by your Veterinary Surgeon and is included as part of the cost in your cat's annual vaccination. Your Vet will also perform an examination, when you take your cat for a consultation on any other issue or concern with their health. A number of our feline friends do not enjoy a visit to their practice at any time and if you have a grave concern, please speak to your Vet Practice before you go. Please try not to be too concerned, your vet is specialised in handling cats and catering for their needs, they are expects in remaining calm and controlled to give your cat a pleasant and less stressful visit. A number of relaxation techniques are used by Vets to calm your cat.

Your Vet will use this examination to look for signs of ill health such as infections, the presence of parasites or identify the nature of any lumps or bumps. They will also take the opportunity to identify potential problems, which may need treatment or further investigations now to prevent them from developing into something more serious or life threatening for your animal. The ideal result of this examination is when the Vet can give your Pet a clean bill of health and advise you on the appropriate care to maintain their healthy status.

This time is also an ideal opportunity for you to ask your Vet or Veterinary nurse any questions relating to your cats health or lifestyle, such as, nutrition, worming, flea control training and weight control.

Likewise, it is always worthwhile to take in a fresh specimen of urine in a clean container, for your vet to check.

If your cat is over 7 years of age, you may want to consider taking them for a health check more frequently than once a year, at vaccination time.
