Dog and cat health problems

Your pets cannot describe symptoms of health problems to you, but they can show you signs of disease. Awareness of the signs of the most common diseases is one way to help reduce your pet’s risk of being affected by them.

Any marked change in your dog’s habits, appearance, and behavior can be a sign of a serious health problem and you should pay special attention to it. You know your dog better than anyone, so you definitely know when something is wrong.

Cats on the other hand are experts at hiding illness. They tend to hide pain and other health issues. By the time you actually notice something is wrong with your cat, it might have been going on for a longer amount of time than you think.

Most common symptoms

There are two types of diarrhea in dogs and cats, depending on how sudden is its appearance and what is its duration: acute diarrhea (sudden onset, less than 2 weeks duration) and chronic diarrhea (more than 2 weeks duration). Acute diarrhea most commonly appears in puppies and kittens or young dogs and cats, whereas chronic diarrhea usually is seen at older pets.
Ear infection
Ear infections or other ear problems usually involve inflammation of the ear canal. It causes extreme discomfort. Also, in some cases can damage your pet’s hearing. Dogs' ear canals are shaped like an L and easily trap moisture or foreign material like grass seeds in the canal. Actually, that creates the perfect place for bacteria, fungi, and ear mites to settle and cause problems.
There are many reasons that can cause your dog or cat to vomit. In most cases, it is not something serious and it can be treated quite easily. For example, maybe your pet vomits because it ate too much food too fast or ate something that he/she shouldn’t have eaten from the garbage. However, some cases of pet vomiting can be life threatening.
A sudden, intense bout of scratching in dogs, especially one that goes on for an extended period of time or one that your dog cannot be distracted from, indicates a need to contact us immediately to address the problem. This may manifest as itching, biting, licking and/or chewing one or more areas of the body
You must be able to recognize and protect your pet from poisonous substances including plants, human foods, human medications and more. If you suspect that your dog or cat is unwell because of exposure to poisonous substances, you will need to remove your pet immediately from the toxic environment, and contact us as soon as possible.
