Preventative Care for Your Cat

If you are a new cat owner, caring for your pet is necessary to keep them as healthy as possible. Bring your cat to TLC for Pets in Reisterstown to meet with one of our veterinarians when your pet is ill and to receive preventative cat care. Here are some of the preventative care services provided at our facility to help keep your pet well.

Treatment for Parasites

If your pet is suffering from a parasitic problem, our veterinarian will treat them with the appropriate medication to alleviate symptoms and stop the life cycle of the particular pest bothering your cat. To avoid a problem, preventative measures can be taken to minimize the chance of your cat contracting parasites altogether. Our vet will discuss the different parasites that your pet may come into contact with and will provide treatment to keep your pet from suffering from an infestation of any kind.

Immunization Administration

Immunizations are necessary to protect your cat from a variety of different diseases and medical conditions. Our vet will provide you with a recommended schedule depending on your cat's age so you know when each type of vaccination should be administered. Our vet will first conduct a well exam and then give your pet the desired or required immunizations after they are deemed healthy enough to receive them.

Spaying and Neutering

If you are not going to breed your cat, spaying or neutering is necessary. This will stop your pet from being involved in reproducing, which will eliminate the chance of unwanted kittens. Our vet will schedule this surgery according to your pet's age and health.

Microchipping Procedures

If you fear your cat may run away, microchipping is a process to consider. Your contact information is uploaded to an implant which is inserted under your cat's skin. This will reunite you with your pet if they are lost and then brought to a vet or humane society.
