At Family Pet Medical Center, we care for your kittens and cats as if they were our own. We know that your feline companions are important to your family. Our Fort Lauderdale cat vet team will work with your kitten or cat to make sure that their veterinary experiences are as comfortable as possible. From their very first veterinary visit, we can provide your beloved kitty with the best care in the Fort Lauderdale area. Dr. Carlos Sandrea and the entire staff at our Fort Lauderdale animal hospital will work with you to help you keep your kitten or cat happy and healthy for years to come.
Your kitten’s first veterinary visit to our Fort Lauderdale animal hospital should be at about six to eight weeks of age. At this time, we will check the health of your kitten and will perform a fecal exam to check for parasites. We will also start your kitten on a deworming treatment and will provide vaccinations for calicivirus, panleukopenia and feline viral rhinotracheitis. We will also start your kitten on heartworm and flea and tick prevention to help protect your kitten from illnesses transmitted by these parasites.
Our Fort Lauderdale cat vet can also provide you with guidance and support on litter box training, keeping your kitten happy inside and preventing the spread of diseases between your pets and the other members of your family. Our team will also perform a nail trimming and ear cleaning to make sure your kitten is as comfortable as possible. If you are planning to have your cat spayed or neutered, we will discuss the best time for this procedure to keep your kitten safe and to prevent unwanted litters.
As your kitten grows, he or she will need more vaccinations, preventive treatments and other care in our office. We will also perform teeth cleaning to protect your cat’s dental health. Our Fort Lauderdale animal hospital will work with your kitten and with you to make sure that your kitten grows up strong and healthy. We will provide the guidance and support you need to help your kitten thrive.
Older cats still need regular booster shots and check-ups to make sure they are healthy. Routine deworming treatments, ear cleaning, nail trimming and tests that screen for parasites and other illnesses are important ways to protect the health of your cat. In some cases, we may recommend a check on red and white blood cell counts, thyroid function and urinalysis testing to make sure your feline companion is as healthy as possible. We can even check the blood pressure of older cats to help us spot issues before they become more serious.
If you have concerns about any facet of your cat’s health, our team will be here to help you manage these issues effectively. We also offer emergency services available 24 hours a day, seven days a week for our patients. Just call our regular number after office hours to let us know you are on your way.
