Val Vista Animal Hospital provides high-quality veterinarian services for the pets of Gilbert, Arizona. We offer a wide array of options to help pets and their owners with common health problems. While there are endless reasons why a pet might come to see us, there are a few issues that our veterinarians see over and over. Among these are skin conditions, stomach problems, and infections. With these conditions being so common, pet owners need to know what symptoms to look for in their pets.
Skin conditions are among the most common reasons why pets require veterinary services. If your pet is grooming or scratching excessively, check them for red spots, balding, or scabby areas. All of these are indicators that your pet needs to be treated for a skin infection.
While these are especially prominent in cats, they’re common in dogs as well. If your pet is vomiting or has diarrhea, bring them in to be checked for stomach issues.
Urinary Tract Infections
UTIs are common in cats and can be extremely painful. If your cat is urinating more frequently than usual and seems to be in pain while doing so, they likely have a UTI.
Dogs are more likely to end up with ear infections than cats. If your dog seems to be aggressively and frequently shaking its head and scratching, it may indicate an ear infection. Red, crusty ears are another indication of this problem.
Illness and Urgent Care for Pets
Illness and injury are among the most common reasons residents of Gilbert, AZ, visit our clinic. If you have a cat or a dog, they are likely to come in with stomach issues or skin conditions at some point or another. Cats are also prone to urinary tract infections while dogs tend to lean toward ear infections. Regardless of your situation, we here at Val Vista Animal Hospital have the experience and resources to get your furry friend feeling better in no time.
