SICK PET CARE
Is your pet feeling under the weather? Whether it’s an upset stomach, an itchy ear, or something more serious, we’re here for you and your pet.
If your pet is experiencing signs of illness or discomfort, please call to schedule an appointment or to speak with a member of our team. We will go over all of your pet’s symptoms, including how long it has been going on, and any past medical history. Our doctors will perform an in-depth physical exam and, based on their findings, formulate a detailed treatment plan tailored for your pet, with all pricing discussed upfront. This plan may include diagnostic testing such as bloodwork or x-rays, all of which will be interpreted by our veterinarians. Appropriate medications will be prescribed if necessary, or referral for further testing or hospitalization, depending on the case.
As general practitioners, we treat a variety of conditions, including dermatological, cardiac, neurologic, endocrine, and ophthalmologic, among others. Visit our blog to find articles relating to these individual areas!
If you need urgent care for your pet, our team is here to help! We can provide care for non-critical conditions that do not require hospitalization or surgery. We are not a full-service emergency clinic. If your pet is sick, we will do our best to schedule an urgent appointment and recommend calling ahead to check our availability before coming in.
We can help with:
- Skin or ear infections
- Rashes or bites
- Lethargy lasting more than 24 hours
