Respiratory Infections

Pets frequently develop respiratory symptoms, such as sneezing, coughing, watery eyes, fever, and lethargy. These infections can be acquired from contact with other animals.

However, respiratory symptoms can also be a symptom of serious infectious diseases. Your vet in Collierville will determine the cause of the problem, so that appropriate treatment can be administered.

Gastrointestinal Problems

Gastrointestinal upsets are common in pets and may not be more than a temporary problem. However, when these symptoms continue, your vet can help with diagnosis, medications and other methods of treatment.

Skin Problems

Skin eruptions are a common problem in pets that can be caused by a number of factors. Contact with toxic substances, insect bites and allergies are the most common causes. Finding the cause of the problem can require investigation. Your vet can provide soothing medications, antibiotics, and cortisone to relieve uncomfortable symptoms.

Orthopedic Issues

Pets can develop paw and nail problems, but limping and orthopedic problems can also develop. These issues can be treated with medications to reduce inflammation and pain, and surgical procedures are also available to restore full function.

Eye & Ear Problems

Injuries to the eye can occur in pets, and some animals may develop infections of the eye. Other types of dysfunction can also occur. Ear infections are a common problem that can be treated with antibiotics and other medications. Your vet will carefully determine the source of the problem and discuss options for treatment.

Emergency Pet Care

If your pet experiences severe bleeding, breathing problems, seizures or unconsciousness, call your veterinarian immediately for emergency care. These problems require fast veterinary intervention to preserve the life and health of your pet.
