Some common conditions require more immediate medical attention. Below are some of the conditions our care team sees weekly.
Allergies are as common in pets as they are in humans. This is because pets are susceptible to many of the same allergies as people. Some common allergens for pets are fleas, certain foods, dust, and environmental pollutants.
If you notice your pet is coughing, sneezing, wheezing, vomiting, or has diarrhea, rashes, or itchy skin, immediate medical attention is needed. These can be indicators that your pet is suffering from a possible allergy.
Canine Parvovirus (CPV)
Canine parvovirus, also known as Parvo, is a common virus that causes acute gastrointestinal illness in dogs and can be fatal in puppies. This highly contagious virus spreads quickly in homes and kennels due to the many ways it can be transmitted. Parvo can be contracted through direct dog-to-dog contact, contact with contaminated feces (stool), and contaminated environments. Notable signs of an infection in your dog or puppy include lethargy, loss of appetite, abdominal pain and bloating, fever, vomiting, and diarrhea.
While there is currently no approved treatment once a dog becomes infected, our doctors can treat your dog’s symptoms to provide an improved quality of life. The canine parvovirus vaccine greatly reduces the risk of your dog or puppy contracting this sometimes fatal condition.
Feline Panleukopenia (FPV)
Feline panleukopenia, also known as Feline Distemper, is a common virus that causes acute gastrointestinal illness in cats and can be fatal in kittens. Similar to parvovirus, it is highly contagious and extremely resilient, surviving dormant on surfaces for up to a year. Notable signs of an infection in your cat or kitten include generalized depression, loss of appetite, high fever, lethargy, vomiting, diarrhea, nasal discharge, and dehydration.
While there is currently no approved treatment once a cat becomes infected, our doctors can treat your cat’s symptoms to provide an improved quality of life. The feline panleukopenia vaccine greatly reduces the risk of your cat or kitten contracting this sometimes fatal condition.
