Pet Seizure Veterinary Hospital South Philadelphia

If your pet is actively having a Seizure, seek emergency medical attention immediately. Avoid handling or going near your pet’s mouth. Unfortunately, animals having a seizure are disoriented and often bite and they may accidentally harm you. If you think that you have seen a seizure-like episode but are not sure, please call a member of our veterinary hospital as soon as possible. Such episodes will usually recur and may be associated with other serious health problems. Isolated, short duration seizures can often be treated by your veterinarian.

Heartworm Treatment Veterinary Hospital South Philadelphia

Heartworm is a treatable disease but the damage caused by the heartworms is permanent. Patients with heartworm disease are staged based on changes noted in bloodwork and radiographs which show a patient’s heart, vital organs, and blood vessels. Higher class heartworm patients have a poorer prognosis and treatment carries higher risks of side effects and complications. The actual treatment for heartworm disease centers around killing the bacteria inside of the worms, reducing inflammation caused by the worms, and ultimately, killing the worms themselves.

Dogs With Diarrhea Vet South Philadelphia

There are numerous causes of Diarrhea. While many of these are fairly benign and easy to treat and alleviate, other causes are of much more concern.

Hot Spots In Dogs Vet Hospital South Philadelphia

Hot Spots are itchy, red, moist lesions under the skin that result from licking or scratching. Hot spots can be a singular area which can be very large in size or there can be several at the same time in different areas of the body. Fortunately, hot spots look a lot worse than they are and most will heal quite well with a comprehensive treatment plan as outlined above. During your visit, a member of our World of Animals’ Veterinary Hospital will also discuss the underlying causes of hot spots and attempt to identify the inciting cause.

Heart Disease In Pets Vet Hospital South Philadelphia

There are many causes of Congestive Heart Failure but it’s important to think of this more as a “state of being” than the disease which causes it. Pets can go in and out of congestive heart failure many times as medications are initiated and dosages are changed, or as a disease state progresses. There is always an underlying disease state which causes this. The most common cause of heart failure is valvular disease, or an age-related defect in the valves which separate the chambers of the heart.
