Feline Upper Respiratory Infection Vet South Philadelphia

Kitten URI’s are contagious to other cats and kittens through aerosolized droplets and through contact with clothing or skin that has those droplets on them. Fortunately, kitten URI’s are not contagious to humans. It is possible for adult cats to also get URI’s but are less susceptible to displaying symptoms once a fully competent immune system is developed.

Harmful Algae Blooms Veterinary Hospital South Philadelphia

Harmful Algae Blooms are caused by an overgrowth of naturally occurring cyanobacteria that live in fresh, salt or brackish water. These overgrowth events or algal blooms tend to occur when the water is warm, stagnant and full nutrients such as fertilizer, a farm runoff or storm drain discharge. There are no known antidotes to cyanotoxins. The toxins cannot be eliminated by boiling or filtering contaminated water. If you think that your pet has been swimming in contaminated water during an algal bloom, immediately bath them with clean water. Even licking or grooming themselves after bathing in contaminated water can cause serious illness.

Mammary Gland Cancer Veterinary Hospital South Philadelphia

Mammary Gland Cancer is a common form of cancer for dogs and cats who have had at least 2 heat cycles before being spayed. It appears as one or many nodules on the underside of your dog or cat that is associated with the mammary gland underneath the nipple. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. For this and many other reasons, it is recommended to spay your female dogs and cats before their first heat cycle. While there is a long-standing debate about the correct time to spay your pet; spaying at a young age before the first heat cycle will almost entirely eliminate the risk of mammary cancer in your dog or cat. Spaying at about 6 months of age is the most common veterinary recommendation at this time.

Pet Ear Infections Veterinary Hospital South Philadelphia

Ear Infections in dogs and cats are very common. In fact, it’s one of the most common conditions that I’ve seen in veterinary medicine. Ear infections cause redness, swelling, and can lead to damage to the ear canal, hearing loss, and other problems. In addition, ear infections hurt! Have you noticed your dog scratching at his ears or shaking his head? Is he rubbing his head on the carpet?  These are all common signs your pet has an ear infection. If you suspect your pet has an ear infection, I recommend calling one of our offices to schedule an appointment with a member of our veterinary hospital.
