Pet Wellness Care
We want to be your partner in the care of your pet. Communication is essential in any relationship, and we hope you find value in your pet’s annual exams and check-ups. It is critical to bring your pet to Seymour Animal Hospital for physical examinations. We provide thorough physical examinations in order to detect potential problems before they become major issues. Many pet health problems can be avoided with regular physical exams, which is why we recommend that your pet be examined by our staff at least twice a year. While physical exams are important for animal health, you can help by being a responsible pet owner. If you notice any irregularities with your pet, take detailed notes and bring him or her to for an examination.
During a physical exam, your veterinarian looks for anything out of the ordinary. What is considered normal is a combination of what is considered normal for the breed and what is considered normal for your specific unique pet. Every pet is unique, just as every person is unique. Any areas of concern will be addressed further after the veterinarian has completed the basic physical exam.
Previously, parasites such as fleas, ticks, and roundworms were regarded primarily as a nuisance. We now know, however, that parasites can cause severe illness and even death in pets. Ticks, for example, can spread Lyme disease, and fleas can spread tapeworms and Bartonella – the bacteria that causes “cat scratch fever” in humans. Mosquitoes transmit another type of parasite known as heartworm. Heartworms live in your pet’s lungs and heart, causing damage and, in some cases, death. Intestinal parasites such as roundworms and hookworms pose a threat to pets and can even be transmitted to humans.
You may not always be able to detect parasites in your pet. Fleas can hide under your pet’s fur, and some ticks are so small (the size of a pinhead) that they are difficult to detect. Roundworms and other intestinal parasites can cause diarrhoea and other problems, but many infected pets show no signs of illness at all.
Fortunately, we can recommend tests to determine whether or not your pet has parasites. We can also check your pet for fleas, ticks, and other parasites. Our knowledgeable staff can advise you on the best medications to control fleas, ticks, heartworms, and intestinal parasites. Preventing parasites in your pets also protects children and other family members, so let’s all work together to keep your pets and family safe.
