Below are some commonly asked questions regarding preventative care for cats. 

What does preventive care for my cat entail?

Preventive care is all about being proactive in safeguarding your cat's health. It includes regular health check-ups, essential vaccinations, dental care, and preventive treatments for common parasites. Our compassionate team at Vet At Your Door is committed to ensuring your cat's health is always a priority.


How does preventive care benefit my cat's health and longevity?

Regular preventive care is key to maximizing your cat's health span, or a long, healthy life. By maintaining their veterinary health checks, balanced nutrition, and up-to-date vaccinations, you're not just extending their lifespan but also enhancing their quality of life. Our gentle, in-home care minimizes stress, promoting a healthier, happier cat.


What specific preventive care do veterinarians recommend for kittens and adult cats?

For kittens, we recommend starting regular check-ups at six weeks, focusing on vital vaccinations and parasite prevention. Adult cats benefit from an annual health review, encompassing physical examinations, lab screening tests, and preventive treatments tailored to their unique needs. Our team at Vet At Your Door offers personalized care plans, ensuring your cat's health is monitored and maintained at every life stage.

What common health issues can preventive care help avoid?

Preventive care can significantly reduce the risk of diseases such as feline diabetes and intestinal parasites, which can severely impact your cat's health. Regular health assessments and vaccinations are fundamental in preventing these conditions, and our team is here to guide and support you through every step.

Why should I avoid diagnosing my cat's health issues on my own?

Cats are naturally adept at masking pain and discomfort. Self-diagnosing can often lead to misunderstandings of their health needs. Our experienced veterinarians are skilled in interpreting subtle signs of feline ailments, ensuring your cat receives accurate and compassionate care.

What are the consequences of not providing preventive care?

Skipping preventive care can increase the likelihood of your cat developing serious health conditions, like infectious diseases or parasite infestations. Our approach at Vet At Your Door is to prevent these issues before they arise, safeguarding your beloved cat's health and well-being.

How often should my cat visit the vet?

We recommend annual vet visits for adult cats, with more frequent check-ups for seniors or cats with special needs. Our mobile service brings veterinary care to your doorstep, ensuring your cat's health needs are met with minimal stress and maximum convenience.

How frequently do cats need vaccinations?

The schedule for vaccinations varies based on your cat's age, health, and lifestyle. Our team will provide a personalized vaccination plan, ensuring your cat is protected against common diseases.

What routine veterinary care is essential for my cat?

Annual health reviews, including physical exams and discussions about vaccine and parasite control, are crucial. Lab work can also serve to provide a baseline for any future illness or issues that come up. Our Fear-Free Certified professionals make these routine checks comfortable and stress-free for your cat.

Is it safe to leave my cat alone for extended periods?

Cats are pretty independent. Ideally, healthy cats should be checked on a daily basis when you are away. It's also important to give your pet sitter your veterinarian's information and a signed health care proxy so they know what to do and where to go in an emergency.
