Common Pet Health Issues
Pet Wellness & Issues
Wellness is about trying to prevent problems or at least identify existing problems as early as possible. Finding problems early increases our chance of helping pets live longer, healthier lives.
Veterinary visits encompass everything from ear and skin infections to parasites and general health concerns. Often we hear that something is just off. No matter what the problem or concern, we can help figure it out. Below are some common problems for our pets.
Even indoor dogs and cats are susceptible to heartworms as mosquitoes are very aggressive and often find their way into our homes.
In warm, humid areas like Georgia, fleas thrive year-round. Additionally, fleas can survive on your pet and inside your home all year!
Pets can be allergic to all the same things we are: pollen, grass, mold, food and various insects including fleas.
Obesity causes the same problems in animals that it does in people. Diabetes, arthritis, as well as heart and respiratory diseases, are just a few big reasons to get and keep our pets thinner.
Symptoms associated with early mobility issues are often missed or written off as just normal aging signs.
