Wellness and General Care

Cats are experts at hiding their clinical signs. Evolutionarily, cats are programmed to conceal signs of illness. Predators instinctively look for the weakest or sickest animal to prey on, so cats do everything they can to pretend that they’re not sick until they simply can’t hide it anymore. By the time the cat reveals to the owner that he is sick, the illness may have progressed too far to successfully treat. Early detection of illness is the key to keeping your cat healthy.

Thorough Physical Examinations

Early detection of illness is the key to keeping your cat healthy. This is why at Manhattan Cat Specialists we recommend examinations twice a year.

Tailored Wellness Programs

Our veterinarians have devised tailored health plans to fit your individual cat’s needs.

Blood Typing

If your cat must receive a blood transfusion, the donated blood must be the same type as your cat, and therefore blood typing would be needed.

Blood Pressure Measurement

Hypertension may affect many of the cat’s body systems, including heart, kidneys, eyes, and nervous system.

Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) Testing

All kittens should be tested for these viruses.

Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) Testing

All kittens should be tested for these viruses.

Heartworm Testing

Heartworm infection in cats is harder to detect than in dogs.  Screening cats includes the use of both an antigen and an antibody test.  We may also use x-rays or ultrasound to look for heartworm infection.

Flea & Tick Prevention

There have been major breakthroughs in flea control for small animals.  There are several once-a-month oral and topical products that control fleas.  Several of these products control other external and internal parasites as well.

Soft Paws plastic nail caps

SoftPaws are little plastic nail caps, shaped like a cat’s nail, but are hollow inside.  The nail caps fit over the cat’s own nail, and are kept in place.  The nail caps blunt the claws, preventing damage to furniture (and people!) when a cat scratches.

Ear Mites Treatment

Ear mites are pesky, microscopic bugs that can live in your kitten’s ears, causing itching and relentless discomfort.Fortunately, they are easily diagnosed and treated.
