With our professional team, you can ensure you are getting the best professional insight into the situation at all times. With the right information, you can make sure your animal is always getting the care they need to thrive on a day-to-day basis. Read on to see the most common areas in need of treatment, and how an expert can help you.

Ears and Hearing

Ear infections are common in most kinds of animals, especially when considering dogs and cats found in most households. When regarding cats it is usual to find and treat ear mites, while dogs routinely display yeast or bacterial infections on the skin. There is an array of issues that can be found in these much-needed parts. Left untreated, ear infections can progress to painful, inflamed, thickened ears, making future cleaning and treatment difficult. Your professional will usually also look for any masses or polyps that need to be removed.

Eyes and Vision

The eyes are a sensitive area whether in or around the eye itself. Issues around this part abound in flat-faced breeds, such as Bulldogs, Pugs, and Persians, and a number of breeds across common household animals. Dryness is a most common issue as well as ingrown hair, especially when trapped within a fold of skin. If your animal develops glaucoma that is left unchecked, it will suffer from increased discomfort and intense eye pain from the buildup of pressure. Severe cases can also bring the potential of vision loss, and surgical removal will be necessary.

Mouth and Oral Health

Dental health has the ability to impact your animal’s entire well-being. Seeing a professional will allow you to properly guard against and detect signs of gingivitis, loose teeth, tartar accumulation, and oral masses. A dirty mouth can harm an animal’s heart, kidneys, and other organs through oral bacteria.

Heart and Lungs 

Older pets are prone to heart disease, but younger cats and dogs also can show problems with heart rhythm and function. Cardiac disease is best managed when signs first appear, and these signs are often only picked up by auscultation with a stethoscope, leading to further diagnostic testing.
