cats-heart-disease-attack.jpgWe spoke a little about what you should be looking for in a good vet yesterday. Today we're going to talk about the typical procedures that are performed on your cat during a typical visit to the vet. According to my vet, the typical procedures for my cat's visit are as follows:

Checks my cat's ears for infections and other problems such as ear mites.

  • They perform standard blood work on my cat.
  • My vet usually asks me for a fecal sample, they use this to find intestinal parasites.
  • They check my cat's weight.
  • According to my vet, most vets will check your cat's respiration and heart rate.
  • He always checks my cat's teeth and gums. Healthy teeth and gums are crucial to a healthy cat.
  • My vet usually completes a "once over" of my cat's fur and scalp.
  • They will check my cat's eyes for pupil response.
  • After my cat has left claw marks all over my vet's hands, she usually gets a treat. If your cat is like mine, she probably won't like going to the vet. A good vet makes your cat comfortable and more importantly, answers your questions about the procedures she's performing.
