Cats are considered “seniors” at about 7 years of age. Senior cats, like people, face an increased risk of certain health problems. Early detection through the use of simple laboratory tests can help prolong and improve your cat’s quality of life. During your cat’s annual senior exam, our veterinarians may recommend some of the following routine procedures:

  • Complete blood count
  • Chemistry profile
  • Urinalysis
  • Blood pressure
  • EKG
