Cat Questionnaire

Your cat has an upcoming wellness appointment. In order to expedite your curbside appointment, we would like you to read and perhaps decide on what your cat might need prior to arrival. If you have questions about how to fill this form out or what your pet needs, please do not hesitate to contact us or speak with us at your appointment.
  • Date Format: MM slash DD slash YYYY
  • Eyes, Ears, Mouth/Teeth, Coughing/Breathing Issues, Digestive Issues, Skin Issues, Lumps, Bumps, Arthritis?
  • Litterbox Use

    Litterbox use is obviously important, and not using the litterbox may be an indicator of a medical or behavior problem.
  • Vaccinations

    Your reminder will state what your cat is due for. However, we base vaccinations on your pet’s lifestyle, and many pets don’t always need all the vaccines available.
    If your cat spends any amount of time outdoors, you may want to consider vaccinating for Feline Leukemia Virus and having your cat on a heartworm and flea/tick preventative.
  • Core Vaccines

    Please read about the vaccine options in each section and mark the one you would prefer your pet to have.
    We recommend, when possible, 3-year vaccines to decrease the frequency your pet needs vaccines. We also prefer to have their 3-year vaccines on alternate years with the other 3-year vaccines to spread them out
    This vaccine protects against rhinotracheitis, calici, and panleukopenia. After 1 year of age, we recommend this vaccine every 3 years. Once your cat becomes elderly, we would likely discontinue this vaccine.
  • Life-Style Vaccines

    Please read about the vaccine option and mark if you would prefer your pet have it.
    This viral disease attacks the immune system, which leaves cats vulnerable to a host of secondary infections. Transmission occurs through contact with other cats; cats that live in multi-cat households or are allowed to roam outdoors are particularly at risk.
  • Signs of a vaccine reaction, although uncommon, usually occur within an hour or two of the vaccine administration and include soreness, lethargy, vomiting, itchy and in severe cases, shock and collapse. Allergic reactions occur less commonly in cats than dogs, but you should call us immediately and seek emergency care if you see these signs. Certain cats may be genetically predisposed to developing tumors at the site of vaccinations. These tumors are rare, reportedly 2-3 per 10,000 cats. At St. John Animal Clinic, we choose to use non-adjuvanted (no additive) vaccines to reduce this possibility.
  • Parasite Prevention

    We recommend you bring a stool sample every year to check for intestinal parasites
    We highly recommend your pet be on prevention year-round his/her entire life. We have topical prevention that is applied once monthly.

    Please mark which heartworm prevention.

    We recommend flea & tick prevention for your cat if you choose to not use the above heartworm prevention.

    Please mark the prevention and note the quantity you would like dispensed for your cat below if you chose this option.

  • Wellness Bloodwork

    We also recommend having yearly bloodwork done on your pet to look for underlying disease such as liver, kidney, thyroid, and a complete blood count. Cats are experts at hiding symptoms of disease. Our lab offers a cost-savings profile which will screen your pet for all of these.
