Collierville Animal Clinic Treats a Range of Pet Illness
Pets sometimes develop health issues, either minor or major, that require experienced veterinary care. Your veterinarian has the training, experience, and equipment to determine the source of the problem, to help your pet back to good health and function. At Collierville Animal Clinic & Surgery Center in Collierville, TN, we provide urgent care and emergency care for a variety of pet illnesses.
Pets frequently develop respiratory symptoms, such as sneezing, coughing, watery eyes, fever, and lethargy. These infections can be acquired from contact with other animals.
However, respiratory symptoms can also be a symptom of serious infectious diseases. Your vet in Collierville will determine the cause of the problem, so that appropriate treatment can be administered.
Gastrointestinal upsets are common in pets and may not be more than a temporary problem. However, when these symptoms continue, your vet can help with diagnosis, medications and other methods of treatment.
Skin eruptions are a common problem in pets that can be caused by a number of factors. Contact with toxic substances, insect bites and allergies are the most common causes. Finding the cause of the problem can require investigation. Your vet can provide soothing medications, antibiotics, and cortisone to relieve uncomfortable symptoms.
Pets can develop paw and nail problems, but limping and orthopedic problems can also develop. These issues can be treated with medications to reduce inflammation and pain, and surgical procedures are also available to restore full function.
Eye & Ear Problems
Injuries to the eye can occur in pets, and some animals may develop infections of the eye. Other types of dysfunction can also occur. Ear infections are a common problem that can be treated with antibiotics and other medications. Your vet will carefully determine the source of the problem and discuss options for treatment.
