As a member of the AAFP (American Association of Feline Practitioners), we strive to provide a high level of veterinary care for all cats. At Lincoln Park Veterinary Hospital, we understand that cats are not just “small dogs,” and our goal is to give your pet the specialized care that they deserve. Annual preventive care plays a vital role in the early detection of any potential medical issues, and our comprehensive exams will ensure that your cat stays happy and healthy for years to come. During the wellness exam, your cat will receive:
Vaccinations are an important part of maintaining your cat’s health. Our vaccination programs will prevent highly contagious diseases that are easily spread. When creating your cat’s vaccination program, we will look at several factors such as their age, current health, and lifestyle. Outdoor cats or cats that have frequent contact with other animals will require different levels of protection against infectious diseases, and our veterinarians can provide you with the right vaccinations that fits your cat’s needs.
Annual fecal testing will ensure that your cat is free of internal parasites that could have a negative impact on his or her health. At Lincoln Park Veterinary Hospital, we can provide you with recommendations on safe, monthly preventatives for protection against heartworm, ticks, and fleas with trusted products such as Heartgard and Frontline.
Your cat’s exam is a great time to discuss your cat’s current diet and weight. It’s important to review your pet’s diet, as significant weight loss, weight gain, or changes in eating habits could indicate an underlying health condition. Our veterinarians will ensure that your cat is getting the right amount of vitamins and nutrients, as well as an adequate amount of exercise to keep them active and healthy.

Our professional dentistry services will help prevent the development of oral disease. Regular dental care ensures that your cat’s teeth and gums are healthy and strong, and keeps bad breath away. We will inspect your cat’s teeth and gums for tartar, plaque, tooth decay, infections, and signs of tooth weakness. We also provide deep teeth cleaning services at our facility. During the dental exam, we will also discuss the various methods for caring for your pet’s teeth at home. Visit our pet dental care page to learn more.
