Poisons to pets
Ectoparasite and endoparasite treatment
Distemper is a highly infectious, highly fatal viral disease. It is transmitted by airborne droplets (e.g. cough) from an infected animal. It is very common among young animals, especially those housed in groups. The fatality rate among affected dogs is about 50%.
Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal disease in pets. It is caused by a worm called Dirofilaria immitis. Heartworms are found in the heart and large adjacent vessels of infected pets.
Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) is a chronic disease of the intestinal tract. Most affected dogs have a history of recurrent or chronic vomiting and/or diarrhoea.
During periods of vomiting or diarrhoea, the dog may lose weight but is generally normal otherwise.
It means that a yellow pigment is found in the blood and in the tissues.
It is most easily seen in the gingiva (gums), the sclerae (white part of the eyes), and the pinnae (ear flaps).
Tapeworms and roundworms are two of the most common intestinal parasites of pets.
Tapeworms are long flat worms composed of many individual segments whereas roundworms are much shorter and have rounded bodies.
Dental disease is extremely common in animals, especially as they get older. Signs include:
- Heavy tartar deposits
- Loose, broken or diseased teeth
- Inflamed gums
- Smelly Breath
- Pain when eating
