Sick Pet Care in Carthage

Unfortunately, your pet isn’t able to tell you when something’s wrong. In fact, animals often instinctively try to hide signs of illness. It’s up to you to recognize when your pet isn’t feeling well, and to be aware that even subtle changes in behavior can indicate illness. If your pet seems under the weather, or their behavior is a bit “off,” call us today. We’ll work with you to quickly diagnose whatever is ailing him. Once we have a diagnosis, we’ll do all we can to give your pet the best care possible so he’s feeling better soon. Some common ailments affecting pets can include:

  • Skin and coat problems
  • Ear issues
  • Sneezing and coughing
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Strains and sprains

At Central Pet Care in Carthage, our goal is to help pets with these and other common illnesses. Our doctors and staff are trained and ready to offer the highest level of compassionate care for your sick pet. We know it’s difficult to see your pet in pain or distress. That’s why we’re passionate about providing exceptional veterinary care to keep him in the best possible health. Since our pets are like family, we want them to be happy and healthy.

In-house Diagnostics

If you think you might have a sick pet on your hands, bring him in for a visit and we’ll diagnose the problem. Our in-house diagnostic laboratory (which includes blood testing, X-rays, and ultrasound capabilities) allows us to thoroughly evaluate your pet’s symptoms. Diagnostic testing can provide valuable information quickly, which helps in easing your pet’s discomfort as soon as possible. This means you can spend less time worrying about what’s wrong with your pet, and more time focusing on their recovery. We’ll discuss our findings with you so that you’re on board with all diagnostic and treatment decisions. We will always give you our best advice and answer any questions you might have. Like you, we want to see your pet feeling better as quickly as possible.

Regular Preventative Care for Your Pet

When you bring your puppy or kitten in to see us for pet wellness care, they receive necessary vaccinations to support strong immune systems. As your pet grows into adulthood, we like to see them annually to catch potential health problems before they become a bigger issue. When you think about the shorter life spans animals have, you realize how long a year is in the life of your four-legged friend. Senior pets, ones over the age of seven, should see us biannually because they are more likely to develop issues rapidly. When it comes to your pet’s health, early detection and diagnosis goes a long way. Please contact us to schedule your pet’s wellness care exam today!
