Pets get sick just like people do. Most common pet health problems can be treated on an outpatient basis. Common ailments for which we recommend an examination include:
- Vomiting for more than 12-24 hours
- Diarrhea for more than 24 hours
- Loss of appetite for more than 48 hours
- Excessive scratching or chewing at the skin
- Scratching at the ears or head shaking
- Discharge from the eyes or squinting of the eyes
- Excessive coughing or sneezing
- Unexplained weight loss or weight gain
- Lacerations or wounds
- Loss of stamina or energy
- Excessive thirst
- Changes in urination (accidents indoors, increased frequency, bloody urine)
Please call any time you are concerned about your pet. We can help determine if/when your pet should be examined based on the symptoms your pet is showing.
We are equipped to accurately diagnose and treat your pet's problem. Our hospital equipment includes:
- In-house laboratory (bloodwork, needle biopsy analysis, fecal analysis, urinalysis)
- Radiology (X-Ray)
- Electrocardiogram (ECG)
- Anesthesia and surgical capability
Our veterinarians regularly attend continuing education conferences to keep up-to-date on the latest diagnostic methods and treatments. We do our best to provide thorough, cutting-edge care.
In some instances, your pet may be too ill to treat at home. Hospitalization is sometimes necessary for seriously ill pets.
