Even the slightest deviation from the norm in terms of animal health may significantly affect its productivity. As a result, our pets' level of functioning is impaired, and if it is the kind of pet to jump on your bed and show you affection, it no longer has the energy.
At this point, you may be concerned about what is causing your pet's low energy. You must visit our veterinarian for proper diagnosis and treatment. Some of the things that our Fort Lauderdale, FL veterinarian at South Federal Animal Hospital will help you diagnose and treat are as follows.
Internal and External Parasites
Internal and external parasites like humans likely infest an animal. External parasites will cause skin-related problems like irritation or inflammation. Internal parasites invade the animal's tissues. As a result, you may notice the animal's decline in growth and energy.
Your animal may sustain injuries during movement, get hit, or fall. Our veterinarian is equipped to treat the bruises, fractures, or sprains that may be caused during any accident. We may carry out an X-ray to determine the injury's severity and provide the necessary treatment.
An infection may be bacterial, fungal, or viral. These may lead to severe conditions that may lead to transmission to humans. You may notice symptoms like diarrhea, vomiting, poor appetite, insomnia, and lethargy. In addition, some infections may affect essential organ functions, such as sight and hearing. Our veterinarian will help diagnose these and administer the necessary treatment.
Our veterinarian may help treat your animal when your pets experience challenges related to anxiety or conditioning. For example, when an animal changes its environment, they are likely to experience stress associated with such and may need reconditioning of behavior necessary for its well-being. Our behavioral veterinarian will also assist in the training of your pets.
Your pets may encounter an incident that requires intensive care. For example, your pets may have ingested a poisonous substance, experienced excessive bleeding, or had difficulty breathing. In such an occurrence, our veterinarian will administer first aid to your pets to help them stabilize.
Pets are predisposed to conditions that may risk their dental health, such as breaking teeth or cavities. In addition, these circumstances may cause discomfort in chewing food. Therefore, it is essential to ensure checkups to help prevent dental-related problems.
