Whether your feline friend is an outside or inside pet, yearly physical examinations, vaccines, and fecal flotations are important for their overall health. At Furry Friends, we understand not all cats enjoy their visit to the vet and uses fear free tactics to help your cat feel more sure about it's new surroundings. Once our feline companions reach 8 years of age they are at a higher risk of disease. Yearly blood work is recommended for these older cats including a complete blood count to look for things such as anemia, inflammation, and infection as well as a serum biochemistry to look for disease of the liver, kidneys and pancreas as well as other electrolyte abnormalities. It is also recommended to check older cats thyroid function because older cats are predisposed to hyperthyroidism. This proactive care provides an opportunity to prevent disease or can lead to early diagnosis of disease often resulting in a shorter
and easier road to recovery.
