Prolong Your Cat's Life

Pleasant Valley Animal Hospital provides a full range of preventive care services to help your cat live a longer, happier life and to increase the odds of detecting problems early, before they become severe and costly.

Our veterinarians make their annual preventive care recommendations based on the guidelines established by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) and the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and take into consideration your cat's hereditary factors, age, medical history and lifestyle.

Dr. Uranko with Cat PatientAnnual preventive care for cats typically includes:

  • At least one annual Physical Examination at which time our veterinarians will take a complete medical history, make nutrition recommendations, assess behavior, and review any known medical conditions.

    During the exam our doctors will perform a:
    • Ear and Eye Examination
    • Cardiopulmonary (Heart and Lung) analysis
    • Temperature Reading
    • Abdominal Palpation
    • Dental Exam
    • Dermatological Exam
    • Musculoskeletal Evaluation
  • Vaccination recommendations include core vaccines Rabies and Feline Distemper. The Rabies vaccination is mandated by state law. Vaccination against Feline Panleukemia, Rhinotracheitis, Calici Virus, Feline Leukemia, and Pneumonitis are essential.

  • Parasite Control Products to prevent and repel heartworms, intestinal parasites, fleas and ticks. Round worms can be transmitted to humans, so controlling these parasites protects your cat and also your family. Cats should also have stool checks for internal parasites twice a year.

  • Diagnostic Testing to check for Feline Leukemia and/or Feline AIDS (FeLV/FIV), heartworms or other internal parasites and early stages of diseases which cannot be detected during a physical exam.

  • Your veterinarian will also discuss other services, such as dental care, tattooing or microchipping, that can lead to a longer and healthier life for your cat. We also offer several health care plans at reduced cost including First Year of Life Twice-a-Year Wellness Exam, Feline Leukemia, and Golden Age Screening.
