Learning About Vet Services
Hello, my name is Selena McMurphy. Welcome to my site about vet services. Veterinarians saved my cat after she developed a serious illness from going outside and hunting rodents. The vets immediately diagnosed and treated the condition to help her fully recover. She had to stay at the vet clinic for several nights for support and observation. I visited the clinic day and night to learn more about her condition and spend time with my pet. On this site, I will share information about the various ways vets diagnose and treat health conditions and injuries affecting pets of all kinds. I hope you will come by often to learn more.

There are few thing more precious than a brand new puppy, and you want to do everything you can to keep him safe and happy. Because a puppy's immune system is not full developed yet, he is more prone to catching serious illnesses. As a pet parent, it is up to you to be aware of these sicknesses and protect your puppy from them. Here are seven viruses to watch out for in puppies:
If you are diligent about your dental care and visit a dentist regularly, you've probably been warned about the consequences of not keeping up with good dental hygiene. You take notice when the dentist tells you that poor dental habits can lead to tooth decay, gingivitis, periodontal disease, tooth loss, bone deterioration, heart disease and other serious health conditions. Your dog's mouth is very similar to yours, and neglect can cause many of the same problems your dentist warned you about.
Conjunctivitis, also known as weepy eye, is a bacterial eye infection that can affect your pet rabbit. This infection is potentially life-threatening for rabbits, so if your rabbit develops it, they need emergency veterinary care. Here are five things you need to know about this condition.
What causes it?
Conjunctivitis is caused by bacteria. The bacteria can be spread by direct contact with an infected rabbit or through contact with contaminated objects, like bedding or toys.
Mouth rot is a common, yet serious, condition for boa constrictors. The infection starts in the mouth, causing swelling and reddening of the mouth lining and gums. As the infection worsens, oozing sores erupt inside the mouth and necrosis sets in; destroying the teeth, gums, and jaw of the snake. If left untreated, mouth rot can spread to the intestinal lining, cranium, or blood stream -- all of which are potentially fatal conditions.
Sometimes, aggression in dogs a learned behavior, is common in specific breeds, or is the result of poor treatment or fear. However, a previously gentle dog who suddenly begins to exhibit aggressive behavior could actually be struggling with a medical problem. Sudden aggression can be the result of pain or poor hormone regulation. If you think that your dog might have medical problems leading to aggression, learning more about the common medical causes can help you know if your dog needs treatment.
