Sick Pet Visits
We love our pets and do everything we can to keep them happy and healthy. Regardless of preventative care, wellness appointments, vaccinations, and parasite prevention, pets still sometimes get sick. They can develop chronic illnesses or contract a contagious disease from a wild animal or a neighborhood pet. When you have a sick pet, it's important to seek treatment right away.
Common Reasons to Schedule a Sick Pet Appointment
Pets can't tell us when they don't feel well. In fact, their instinct is to hide their pain and discomfort. We recommend scheduling sick pet appointments when pets display any of the following signs of illness:
• appetite loss
• change in water intake
• oral discomfort
• sudden weight gain or loss
• skin irritations, coat problems, or rashes
• excessive itching
• ear, eye, or nose concerns
It's important to keep a close eye on your pet's behavior because any changes could indicate illness.

If your pet is having difficulty breathing, bleeding uncontrollably, is experiencing seizures or loss of consciousness, or has suffered a serious trauma or injury, he should receive treatment as soon as possible. Contact our office right away at (251) 633-2509 for critical care services.
