Ensuring that your cat receives routine veterinary checkups is the best way to guarantee its wellbeing. Veterinarians can detect if your cat is suffering from pet parasites or other health issues.
Though outdoor pets are more susceptible, all cats are at risk for fleas, ticks, and worms. They can also develop ear infections from mites, bacteria, or yeast. A trained veterinarian can identify these problems and provide treatment for them. Veterinary hospitals can run blood panels to determine if your cat is suffering from diabetes, hyperthyroidism, or kidney disease. They can also test for crystals in the urine, which frequently signal the beginning of bladder stones. During pet wellness examinations, veterinarians will check for heart murmurs or irregular lung sounds and administer vaccines to protect your cat from infectious diseases.
