To ensure a proper diagnosis, we often need to examine your cat. We begin a medical assessment by looking at your cat’s eyes, ears, and skin and checking his or her cardiovascular, neurological, gastrointestinal, and skeletal systems for any abnormalities. We will perform blood and/or urine tests as necessary to check your pet’s kidneys, liver, pancreas, and endocrine system, including the thyroid and adrenal glands. Based on your cat’s condition, we may recommend further diagnostic tests, such as radiography (x-rays), ultrasound, or biopsy.
If you’re concerned that something may be wrong with your cat, please call us to schedule a medical assessment. In order to provide you and your cat with a second medical opinion, we will require a copy of your cat’s medical record faxed or brought to us prior to your appointment
