Treatment and Management of Illnesses
Several illnesses affect pets. These include skin diseases, allergies, cancer, ear infections, eye diseases, and abdominal illnesses. Veterinarians perform tests based on a pet's symptoms for diagnosis before treatment. The most common treatment methods for pets include the use of medications and surgery. Some illnesses can be treated fully, while others have to be managed. Managing illnesses in pets help them find some relief from pain and live a longer life.
Dental services range from routine checkups to treatment of dental conditions and cleaning. Pets can be affected by dental illnesses such as gingivitis which require treatment. Dental cleaning is also crucial as it protects pets from several dental diseases.
Dietary counseling is important as it helps you know which kind of diet you should feed your pet. That ensures it gets all of the nutrients it needs for optimal health. It also helps you identify allergens and avoid giving your pet certain foods that contain them.
Routine checkups are crucial for pets. Your veterinarian will create a checkup routine for your pet depending on factors like the pet's age and state of health. Some of the things that veterinarians do during routine checkups include:
- Noting the pet's weight, gait, and stance
- Examining the skin for signs of infection and parasites
- Listening to the pet's lungs and heart
- Assessing the pet's teeth for diseases
- Checking the eyes for signs of illness
Some conditions require urgent care. These include
- Excessive bleeding
- Allergic reactions
- Accidents or trauma
- Breathing difficulties
- Persistent vomiting or diarrhea
