Pet Illness Treatment with our Hayward Veterinarian

If you live in the Hayward, California metro area and are seeking a reliable routine and emergency pet care clinic, Dr. Sarup Mangat of Caring Pet Hospital provides a full range of both routine and emergency pet care services that assure your pet the best treatment possible.

As pet owners, most of us care deeply about our pets and consider them to be members of our families. The ideal scenario would entail taking a pet to the vet only when it needed routine examinations or vaccinations. Unfortunately, pets get sick just as our human family members do, and often need to see veterinarians for diagnosis and treatment. Sometimes, urgent care is necessary, as is the case when a pet is involved in an accident.

Making sure your dog or cat is vaccinated for certain diseases will not only help the animal live a longer, healthier life. Vaccines can also help other animals by assisting in the prevention of widespread outbreaks of certain diseases, such as Parvo.

Common Reasons To Visit Our Hayward Pet Hospital

In addition to urgent care or emergency pet care, dogs and cats regularly visit veterinarians for other reasons, such as:

Hot spots

Any type of skin irritation, from allergic reactions to flea bites, can cause painful hot spots.

Tooth infections

Tooth infections are typically found to be bacteria that may be found in the dog’s mouth, or can commonly occur when the dog has gum disease or a mouth injury.

Anal gland expression

Anal glands need to be emptied of the fluids that they contain. Oftentimes, dogs express them independently when they empty their bowls. However, occasionally, they fill with fluid and the animal needs help releasing the fluid.

Symptoms To Look Out For

Certain symptoms indicate that a visit to the vet is in order. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Unusual eating behaviors, such as loss of appetite
  • Excessive thirst
  • Lack of energy
  • Dry or rough coat
  • Unusual stool, such as worms, blood or mucus
  • Sudden weight loss
  • Dragging rear
  • Red eyes
  • Cough
  • Possible broken bones
  • Open wounds
  • Vomiting, especially blood
  • Seizures
  • Bleeding from the eyes, nose or mouth
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Whining, shaking or indications of extreme pain
  • Hard, swollen abdomen
