Preventive Care for Cats

Help your cat live a longer, happier life.

Preventive care is an essential part of keeping your cat happy and healthy. It will give you peace of mind and increase the odds of detecting underlying health conditions before they become advanced and expensive.

How often should my cat see a veterinarian?

At SeaPort Veterinary Hospital, we make our preventive care recommendations using the guidelines established by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). Our veterinarians further customize their suggestions based on factors including your cat’s age, breed, lifestyle, and medical history.

What should I expect from my cat's wellness exam?

Think of your cat’s wellness exam like your routine physical exam with your own doctor. 

Your veterinarian to make recommendations for:

  • Vaccines based on your cat’s lifestyle and exposure
  • Parasite screening and prevention (fleas, ticks and intestinal parasites)
  • Wellness blood work to identify various health conditions that cannot be detected during a physical exam

At your cat's annual exam, your veterinarian will answer any questions you may have and discuss other services that could improve their overall health such as spaying/neutering, microchipping, and dental care.

Call us at (978) 283-8883 to schedule your cat's annual preventive care exam.
