Preventive Care & Diagnostic Exams
During an exam, we check your furry friend from nose to tail with a physical assessment, make sure they receive any appropriate vaccinations, and perform a diagnostic workup to make sure everything on the inside is looking as good as everything on the outside.
Even indoor kitties should be vaccinated at least against Rabies (required by law in the state of Maryland for any dog, cat, or ferret aged 4 months or older). We offer Rabies, Feline Distemper (FVRCP), and Feline Leukemia vaccinations.
A microchip is a tiny device about the size of a grain of rice placed under the skin at the back of the neck. If a cat without an ID tag is found, any member of our team can use a microchip scanner to check for a chip. If the cat is chipped, we can call the chip manufacturer to get the owner’s contact information, and reunite the two.
We offer spaying and neutering for your intact kitties, and soft tissue surgeries such as mass removals or cystotomies for all kitties our doctors deem appropriate surgical candidates.
We check your furry friend’s teeth at every exam and make note of any tartar build up, tooth resorption, and stinky breath. To keep their teeth and gums in good health, we can perform dental cleanings and extractions as discussed with your doctor during an exam.
We provide all boarding cats with clean bedding, fresh water, food, and a clean litter box. Toys and other personal items that are washable are welcome. We administer any needed medication and follow your specified feeding regimen if diet is included with your cat’s belongings. Alternately, we can provide a high-quality diet and treats for no extra charge, although eating their own food tends to agree better with most cats while boarding.
