Conditions Treated By Your Jacksonville Veterinarian
When pets are ill, your Animal Hospital of Onslow County offers state-of-the-art, diagnostic veterinary tools to diagnose health problems as quickly as possible so that our emergency vet can administer proper treatments. When their cats, dogs, rabbits, birds and pocket pets are feeling under the weather, Hubert, Maysville, Midway Park, Camp Lejeune and Jacksonville residents know they can depend on the compassionate, experienced care provided by their North Carolina vet.
Pets exposed to rodents, dirt or other debris containing roundworms or tapeworms usually pick up a parasitical infection when animals touch the worms with their paws or noses and then ingest them by licking their paws or noses. Roundworms and tapeworms attach themselves to an animal's intestinal walls and feed on digested foods passing through the intestines. Specifically, these worms remove nutrients vital to your pet's health. Unless pets are correctly diagnosed and treated for a parasitical worm infection by their Midway Park veterinarian, malnutrition and recurring illnesses will affect the animal's general health and well-being.
Urinary Tract/Bladder Infections
Dogs and cats with bloody urine, an inability to urinate normally or frequent urination may have an inflamed bladder or urinary tract infection. Veterinarians suspect viruses or interstitial cystitis may contribute to the development of urinary tract disease in pets (especially female pets) but have yet to pinpoint the exact cause. Sometimes, the stress involved with moving to another home or the addition of other pets to the household may compromise your pet's immune system and allow the virus to infect the urinary tract or bladder.
Oral Disease/Tooth Decay
When plaque mixes with saliva in your pet's mouth, it rapidly hardens into tartar, a substance directly contributing to loose teeth, tooth decay and gum disease in pets. Tartar is extremely acidic, capable of dissolving dental enamel and weakening gum integrity. Dogs and cats suffering from lost teeth and periodontitis (a serious oral disease) will have difficulty eating because it is painful to eat or will simply refuse to chew their food. Your Hubert, NC vet offers teeth cleanings and dental treatments to reduce your pet's risk of suffering oral infections harmful to their general health.
Accidental ingestion of medications, pesticides, antifreeze, plants or chocolate is the primary reason your Maysville, North Carolina emergency vet treats pets suffering from poisoning. Signs of possible pet poisoning include excessive drooling, vomiting, diarrhea, difficulty breathing and seizures.
