Wellness Program

Benicia Cat Clinic promotes wellness and preventative health care and recommends the following basic level of care for your cat:

  • Annual comprehensive wellness exam for all patients. Semi-annual exams for patients over the age of 9 years (approximately 50 years in human equivalent) or in patients with ongoing medical conditions. Visits include a physical exam, nutritional consultation, and discussion about appropriate vaccines and parasite control.
  • Annual dental cleanings performed on an outpatient basis under safe and carefully monitored anesthesia.
  • Annual FeLV/FIV blood screening and fecal exams for at-risk cats.
  • Geriatric blood screening profiles and urinalysis for cats over 7 years of age.

Our vaccine recommendations are tailored to meet your cat’s specific needs. In most cases we recommend the following core vaccines:

  • FVRCP annually until age 3, then once every 3 years.
  • Rabies vaccine annually.
  • FeLV annually for at-risk cats.
