Signs That Your Pet May Be Sick
Since pets cannot speak our language, we have to look for other signs that they may not be feeling well. This video is a great review of signs to watch for. If you suspect that your pet may be sick, contact your veterinarian — they are the best resource for information about the health and well-being of your best friend.
Recognizing Normals in Your Pet
Dr. Jeff Werber discusses what pet parents should recognize as "normal" or "abnormal" in their pets. Symptoms such as weakness, lethargy, and upset stomach could be just be a pet feeling under the weather, but these symptoms could also be very serious and indicate an underlying illness. When in doubt, it's best to check with your veterinarian if you're concerned!
Wondering Why Regular Veterinary Visits Are So Important?
We strongly recommend a thorough physical exam for every pet at least once a year. Since most pets hide signs of illness from us, routine veterinary visits ensure that any health problems your pet may develop can be dealt with early in the disease process.
Are Human Medications OK for Pets?
Clients often ask us if it is safe to give their pet over the counter medications intended for humans. Pets process medications very differently than we do, so often medications that are safe for us are dangerous for them.
What You Need To Know About Intestinal Parasites (Worms) and Your Pet!
We stress the importance of regular fecal examinations to look for internal parasites, which can often be transmitted between pets and humans. Every pet owner should learn about the various internal parasites to ensure that the whole family, humans and pets, remain healthy.
Dog and Cat Vitals Compared to Humans
Every pet owner should know how to obtain their pet's vital signs. Normal vitals for a pet are very different than those for humans, and this information is very important in case of illness or emergency.
