Conditions Treated and a Veterinarian on Our Veterinary Team
As pet owners, we all want our pets to be in the best of health but pets can sometimes fall ill or acquire certain health conditions due to various factors such as genetics, age, or environmental factors. That's why bringing your pets to a professional veterinarian who can provide proper care and treatment can be essential.
We at Branch's Veterinary Clinic, in Nashville, GA, are an animal hospital with veterinarians who can diagnose and treat various pet health conditions.
Kennel cough, also known as Bordetella, is a respiratory condition that is comparable to a human cold. It is easily spread. Common signs of kennel cough include sneezing, coughing (which can be accompanied by a hacking sound), and nasal discharge.
Parasites such as worms, fleas and ticks are common health concerns for pets, and they can infest your pets' fur, skin, and internal organs. Fleas and ticks can cause itching, anemia, and tick-borne diseases such as Lyme disease. Worms, on the other hand, can lead to weight loss, diarrhea, fatigue, and other problems. A veterinarian on our veterinary team can recommend preventive measures such as topical treatments, medication, and regular checkups to keep your pet parasite-free.
Arthritis is a degenerative joint disease that affects pets as they age. It's a painful condition that causes stiffness and immobility, making it difficult for pets to move around. Arthritis can also lead to mobility issues such as lameness and limping. A professional veterinarian on our veterinary team can diagnose arthritis in pets and provide treatment options such as pain relief medication, weight management, exercise, and lifestyle advice.
Like humans, pets can also suffer from allergies caused by various environmental factors such as dust, pollen, and food. Allergic symptoms in pets include itching, sneezing, vomiting, and diarrhea. A professional veterinarian can diagnose pet allergies by conducting tests. Treatment options may include medication, allergy shots, and dietary management.
