Common Pet Problems

Pleasant View Veterinary Clinic Discusses Common Pet Problems

Over their lives, pets may develop a number of problems that require veterinary attention. Whether it is minor health issues, a serious condition or a puzzling behavioral problem, your veterinarian can help with treatment, advice and a deep understanding of animals and their needs. At Pleasant View Veterinary Clinic in Lewistown, PA, we have many years of experience treating common pet problems.

Common Health Problems

Respiratory infections, ear infections, parasites, and gastrointestinal upsets are among the most common problems in dogs. Your veterinarian can treat these issues with antibiotics, anti-parasite drugs, and special diets to relieve symptoms. Cats may develop respiratory infections, urinary tract problems, eye or ear infections and external parasites. Your vet can administer a number of medications to help these issues.

Common Behavioral Problems

Dog owners may have questions about their pet’s frequent barking, aggression toward other animals or housebreaking lapses. Your vet in Lewistown can offer reliable methods of changing these behaviors, so you can enjoy your pet more. Changes in behavior can sometimes signal an underlying health problem, and your vet can provide testing and treatment, to help your pet be both healthier and happier.

Veterinary Treatment and Advice for Happy, Healthy Pets

Your Lewistown veterinarian uses a variety of equipment and tests to determine the cause of many health problems. Medications, therapies, changes in nutrition and surgery make it possible to manage many conditions, relieving discomfort and helping your pet to live a more active and engaged life.
