7 Essential Reasons Every Cat Needs an Annual Vet Exam

Image description

Cats are known to have a penchant for biting and scratching, but even the most fierce feline can be docile and affectionate when feeling right. Like humans, cats need routine veterinary care to keep their wellness in check.

1. Preventative Medicine:
Routine wellness exams can also catch a problem early when treating it is easier and less expensive.
2. Vaccination:

Do not also forget to have your cat's vaccinations updated every year.
3. Heartworm Prevention:
Heartworms are a parasite that can cause life-threatening anemia in cats, but your cat can be protected
against them every year.
4. Nutrition:

Nutrition is essential for average growth; proper nutrition can help prevent illness.
5. Spaying:

Spaying is a routine procedure that many cats require.
6. Trimming of Nails:

Most cats have the instinct to keep their nails neatly trimmed, but this cannot be easy to enforce if you are busy.
7. Dental Care:

Just like humans, cats can also get cavities.

In conclusion, routine veterinary check-ups and vaccinations can help keep your cat happy, healthy, and disease-free. So please do not put your cat's health at risk and take them to their annual veterinary visit as soon as possible to prevent any potential health problems in the first place.

90% of cats will be exposed to feline herpesvirus over their lifetime. All cats can catch the feline herpes virus, but kittens who have not been vaccinated are particularly susceptible to catching the virus. Feline herpes is a highly contagious virus that can quickly be passed between cats causing feline rhinotracheitis. Together with feline calicivirus, it is one of the most common causes of conjunctivitis and cat flu.

In this webinar, you will learn:
1. Virus characteristics and epidemiology of FHV-1
2. Pathogenesis of FHV-1 disease
3. Ocular manifestations of FHV-1
4. Polymerase chain reaction test for FHV-1
5. A review of antiviral drugs and other compounds with activity against FHV-1


Dr. Jingwen (Stella) Luo received her master's in Clinical Veterinary Medicine from Nanjing Agricultural University, China, in 2013. Since then, she has been engaged in the clinical work of pet ophthalmology. In 2021, she established a specialized hospital of small animals' ophthalmology in Wuxi, Jiangsu Province, China. In addition, she was certified as GPcert SAM by ISVPS. Now, she also serves as the second tutor for master's students at Nanjing Agricultural University in China.

Is your Dog at risk for contracting leptospirosis?

Image description

Leptospirosis is an emerging zoonotic disease found throughout most of the United States. Leptospirosis in dogs affects many organ systems and varies in severity; clinical signs range from none or mild and self-limiting to severe with acute kidney injury, hepatopathy, and vasculitis.

Dogs become infected when their mucus membranes or abraded skin comes into contact with Leptospira-infected urine or substrates contaminated with infected urine (e.g., water or soil) from a reservoir host. The most common reservoir hosts are wild animals, such as rodents. Leptospira serovars have adapted to reservoir hosts, where a carrier state is established, and leptospires are intermittently shed in reservoir hosts' urine.

Several tests are available for diagnosing leptospirosis, and high accuracy is achieved using a combination of different tests. Although many patients require aggressive therapy, the prognosis is ultimately good if appropriate care is provided.

Signalment of Leptospirosis in Dogs

Leptospirosis has conventionally been thought to most commonly affect young adult, male, large-breed, or hunting dogs living in rural areas. Indeed, some studies have found intact male dogs and working dogs overrepresented among leptospirosis patients. However, other studies have found similar seroprevalence among dogs of large and small breeds, both sexes and all age groups.

Signs of Leptospirosis in Dogs

• Lethargy
• Arthralgia and myalgia
• Polydipsia and polyuria
• Oliguria or anuria
• Altered hydration status (overhydration with oliguria/anuria or dehydration with polyuria)
• Gastrointestinal abnormalities (decreased appetite, vomiting, diarrhea)
• Icterus
• Bleeding tendency (petechia, melena, hematochezia, epistaxis)
• Tachypnea
• Conjunctivitis
