It’s generally recommended that Sphynx cats, like all cats, receive a regular veterinary check-up at least once a year. This is because cats are experts at hiding illness, and even if they appear healthy, they may have underlying conditions that need to be addressed. Additionally, annual check-ups can help to catch any potential health problems early, before they become more serious.
During a check-up, your vet will perform a physical examination and may recommend any necessary vaccinations or diagnostic tests. They will also check the cat’s weight, teeth, ears, and eyes, and may take blood or urine samples to check for any signs of illness. They may also discuss any behavioral or dietary concerns you have and recommend any necessary changes.
If your Sphynx cat is older, or has any pre-existing medical conditions, it may be necessary for them to have check-ups more frequently than once a year. Your vet can advise you on the appropriate frequency of check-ups for your cat.
It is also important to keep in mind that you should always bring your Sphynx to the vet if they show any signs of illness or distress. If you’re ever unsure about whether you should take your cat to the vet, it’s always best to err on the side of caution and have them checked out.
