B-Annual Senior Feline Visits (Recommendations for Cats over 10 years)

Rabies Vaccine:

1-year or 3-year (to receive a 3-year pet must have received a 1-year vaccine first)

FVRCP Vaccine:

1-year or 3-year duration depending on lifestyle

Annual Heartworm Test

Testing and verification of heartworm prevention

Annual Intestinal Parasite Test

*If needed or not done prior to visit

Lifestyle and risk-based recommendations:

  • Feline Leukemia/FIV Testing
  • Feline Leukemia 2-year Vaccination

Additional things to consider:

  • Is your pet microchipped?
  • Are you keeping up with your pet’s oral care at home?
  • Are you feeding a clinically tested, veterinarian approved diet?
  • What is your pet’s weight and body condition score?
  • Does your cat need hairball control?
  • Does your cat have any breed or age related diseases?
