Bringing your cat in for a yearly check-up is an important aspect of pet ownership and essential to ensuring your cat enjoys a high quality of life. When you bring your cat into our Endeavour Hills clinic for a check-up, one of our experienced veterinarians will examine your pet from nose to tail and ask you lots of questions about their behaviour and daily routines to ensure a comprehensive evaluation of your cat’s health.

Check-ups are also the perfect opportunity for you to ask any questions or voice concerns about behaviours with your vet.

Our examinations are extremely thorough and include:

  • Eye and ear examinations
  • Rectal examination
  • Dental examination
  • Neurologic evaluation
  • Cardiovascular evaluation
  • Weight evaluation and nutrition counselling
  • Coat and skin evaluation
  • Abdominal palpation
  • Urinary system evaluation
  • Reproductive system evaluation
  • Musculoskeletal evaluation
  • Lung evaluation
  • Behavioural counselling

Why do I need to bring my cat in for a yearly check-up?

Cats are masters when it comes to masking health conditions and signs of pain. For this reason, your cat may be unwell but appear perfectly healthy until they become too sick to pretend otherwise. A thorough physical examination by a veterinarian can often result in the early diagnosis of many health conditions, which can then be treated before your cat begins to display any symptoms.

Early detection also often means a better prognosis, easier treatment and a faster recovery for your cat, as well as fewer medical expenses for you to deal with.

Senior cats

Once your cat turns 7 they are considered a senior and at this stage of life, we recommend you bring them in for a check-up once every six months, as health issues can develop a lot faster at this age. To learn more, visit our senior cat page.
