Pets can experience pain from arthritis, allergies, and exposure to the danger of heartworm infection. At Bixby, we treat pet allergies, arthritis, and parasite prevention to help prevent a heartworm infestation.
Several issues that cause allergies in pets include food, fleas, and inhalants, aka foreign particles. Like humans, a pet's immune system reacts and overacts to certain proteins in food, insect bites (fleas), and things like dust and pollen.
Osteoarthritis is a common ailment for dogs and cats, resulting in symptoms due to pain and mobility. In addition, cats may show signs of depression, no longer groom themselves efficiently, have decreased appetite, inability to jump to and from, or on and off areas, and cannot use the litter pan.
Signs in dogs can be difficult: getting up from a lying down position, difficulty getting up and down steps/stairs, stiffness, irritability, tiredness, and no longer showing interest in participating in playtime, including running or jumping.
Mosquitos are the culprit, causing heartworm disease. When left untreated, the parasitic worm lodged into the pet's skin causes a serious condition that can cause death. The worm does damage the pet's organs and causes heart failure and lung disease.
Our clinic offers preventive care to eliminate fleas and ticks using several medications that best suit your pet. We provide flea collars, oral tablets, spot-on treatments, and sprays.
