Importance of preventative medicine - cat vet hospital in Tampa / South Tampa

by Alex Weber, DVM on 09/06/13

We all know how important preventative medicine is for ourselves, but did you know that it is even more important for our cat friends?  Cat's are incredible at hiding disease symptoms, a genetic trait that they have inherited from their big cat relatives, therefore regular exams are essential for keeping your pet as healthy as possible.

At The Cat Clinic of Beach Park, our cat friendly veterinarians recommend yearly exams for patients under 7 and twice yearly exams for patients over 7.  At these visits, the vets perform a thorough exam and then will make recommendations about further preventative care (vaccinations, parasite protection, etc) and screening / preventative lab work.  Since cats are good at hiding disease, these lab tests are needed to try and catch diseases early when they are generally easier to control.

If you have any questions about this topic, or any other cat related issues, please call us at 813-289-3925 or email us at
