According to the National Library of Medicine, over 56% of households in Canada own a pet. Unfortunately, 50% of cats and 20% of dogs are not taken to the veterinarian in a year. Don't let your pet be part of these statistics - you should regularly visit a vet for checkups, advice on preventive care, and treatments. Our veterinarians at Peace Arch Veterinary Hospital in Surrey are at your beck and call to cater to all your pets' needs. Here's an overview of the conditions treated in our animal hospital.
Dental care is vital in ensuring your pet's long-term dental health. It involves regular wellness examinations by our veterinarians to help identify underlying conditions like gingivitis, tooth decay, cavities, and tooth loss. Furthermore, dental checkups are crucial for maintaining oral hygiene.
Since your dog might experience tooth pain or dental problems and lack proper means of expression, dental checkups are the only way to identify such issues to aid in early intervention. Preventive and treatment approaches for gum diseases include dental cleaning, brushing teeth, and dental treats.
Our furry friends can experience reactions to their food, environment, fleas, and medications. If this happens, seeking comprehensive treatment, allergy testing and avoidance, medication administration, symptom management, and follow-up care is advisable to improve the pets' quality of life.
Arthritis commonly affects middle-aged and older dogs and cats, leading to joint changes. The affected pets experience severe pain, reduced mobility, and temperament changes. Although arthritis can't be cured, our veterinarians can use various approaches to manage pain. Some methods that can be used include exercise, dietary supplements, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories, and therapy.
According to Vetsource, approximately 1 in 230 cats and 1 in 300 dogs in their lifetime will develop diabetes. Therefore, you should consult our veterinarians when your pets show symptoms of the body's inability to produce insulin for protein digestion. Usually, these symptoms are visible and may include dehydration, vomiting, excessive thirst, and frequent urination.
If left untreated, eye infections can lead to discomfort and complications for your pet. The common causes of eye infections include injuries, fungi, viruses, and bacteria. Moreover, symptoms like sensitivity to light, inflammation, redness, and excessive squinting are clear indications to consult the animal hospital to prevent any threatening condition. Through the guidance of our veterinarian, you can administer drops or ointment medications to cure the pet's infection.
