Common Pet Problems

Pet owners want to provide the best care possible for their furry companions. Whether they are bringing them to the vet for an annual exam or they need to get up to date on vaccinations, there is a lot to consider. But what about when our pets have problems? At Not Just 4 Paws Animal Hospital in Canyon Lake, we understand that your pet is a part of your family and we are here to help. Let’s look at some of the common problems we see in our patients.

Pet Allergies

One of the most common problems we see is allergies. Just like people, pets can experience a runny nose, sneezing, and dry or flaky skin. If you notice any of these symptoms, your pet likely has allergies.

Parasites or Fleas

Another common issue we see is parasites. These can include fleas, ticks, and ear mites. If you notice your pet scratching more than usual or shaking its head, it may have parasites. It is important to take action quickly because your pet's overall health can become compromised.

Dental Issues

Many pets experience problems with their teeth and gums. More specifically, periodontal disease, which can develop as early as the age of three. This condition is very painful because the bacteria cause inflammation and infections in the gums. If you notice your pet chewing on one side of its mouth or avoiding eating altogether, it may have dental issues.

Injury or Trauma

Pets can also get injured or experience trauma. This is often due to being hit by a car or getting into a fight with another animal. Seeing our veterinarians for emergency care is essential to prevent further injury or infection.
