Preventive Health Care

There are a few things that we routinely recommend for most cats to help them live a long and healthy life.

Overview

This summarizes our general recommendations.

More Specific Information on Various Aspects:

These pages go into more detail.

Vaccinations

Of all the vaccines available for cats, we generally recommend two or three.

Parasite Control

Other than fleas and tapeworms, parasites are uncommon in cats in San Diego County.

Anesthesia 

Usually beginning with a spay or neuter, most cats are anesthetized at some point or points in their life. An appropriately administered anesthesia is preventive in that it:

  • Prevents and alleviates pain, suffering, and stress, all of which can have short and long term consequences.
  • Prevents short term complications such as hypothermia or death.
  • Prevents long term complications such as kidney damage that can progress to kidney disease.
