The Cat Clinic of NW Arkansas offers a progressive new approach to veterinary care. Our Wellness Program embraces a focus on preventative medicine based on the specific life-stage of your cat. Each patient is assessed individually based on factors such as breed, age, and environmental challenges. Next we offer recommendations for prevention, nutrition, and diagnostic work-ups appropriate for your cat.
Our role is to educate you on those procedures and medications especially beneficial for your cat. This allows us to be more flexible with our recommendations, and gives you more control of your cat's healthcare.
The key to maintaining your cat's wellness is an emphasis on the annual health examination. Each year when your cat comes in he or she will receive a comprehensive physical exam and age appropriate ancillary diagnostics (such as blood pressure screening, parasite tests and blood work) to screen for early signs of disease, as well as annual vaccinations.
Dr. Rose suggests a set of three annual vaccinations; FVRCPP, Feline Leukimea, and Rabies.
Patients with health-related concerns will be recommended more advanced diagnostics when needed. More frequent re-evaluations will most-likely become necessary for those cats with ongoing illnesses.
