Diseases We Treat

The emergency medicine team at our hospital specializes in treating a variety of health problems that occur in dogs and cats. While the list below is not exhaustive, our veterinarians can help address these and many other health problems in your pets:

  • Infectious diseases: Including kennel cough, parvo virus, leptospirosis, tick-borne diseases (Lyme, anaplasmosis, ehrlichiosis), canine influenza, ringworm, and others, which can be mitigated through vaccination or treatment.

  • Stomach and intestinal disease: Including gastro-intestinal foreign objects, inflammatory bowel disease, endoparasites (worms, giardia), or hemorrhagic gastroenteritis.

  • Renal, adrenal, liver disease: In addition to degenerative conditions due to old age or congenital abnormalities, there are diseases such as hepatitis, biliary disease, kidney infection (pyelonephritis), urinary tract infections, Cushing’s or Addison’s diseases of the adrenal glands, and many others.

  • Immune disorders: Either genetic or late-onset immune disorders, which can cause your pet to be more vulnerable to other diseases.

  • Pancreatic disease: Including pancreatitis, pancreatic tumors, or hormonal pancreatic imbalances in both dogs and cats.

  • Hormonal disease and disorders: Abnormalities of the thyroid, adrenal, or pituitary, or genetic anomalies that can affect your pet’s behavior and overall health.

  • Respiratory disease: Involving any problems with the upper and lower respiratory systems, including the mouth, nose, airways, throat, and lungs.

  • Blood disease:  Problems with blood may be due to blood parasites, toxins, infectious pathogens, or endocrine abnormalities that interfere with normal blood cell functions.

  • Some types of cancers: Cancers can be identified by our emergency team and we can facilitate oncology consultants.

  • Toxins: Our emergency veterinary team works with the nationally acclaimed ASPCA Poison Control to help identify and treat toxins and poisons that your animal may have ingested and cause a number of abnormalities including anemia, seizures, vomiting, or diarrhea.
