Does Your Pet Suffer from Diabetes or Metabolic and Endocrine Disease?
Are you looking for a Laguna Hills veterinarian capable of treating your pet's complex health issues? Our veterinary professionals at Trinity Pet Hospital in Laguna Hills, CA, have experience giving your dog or cat a comprehensive pet examination. We understand how to diagnose and treat chronic conditions in companion animals.
Conditions treated here in our veterinary hospital include adrenal disease and endocrine abnormalities. If you have noticed some troublesome symptoms in your pet, now is an excellent time to get to the bottom of it.
Diagnosing diabetes and other endocrine diseases like Addison's and Cushing's can be challenging to treat in humans, who can discuss their symptoms and pains with their doctors.
It is even more difficult for our furry friends, who cannot talk and tell us how they feel. That's why your companion animal needs a thorough pet examination at the first sign of illness or discomfort.
Untreated diabetes causes death in dogs and cats. In addition, Addison's disease can upset your pet's electrolytes, induce vomiting and diarrhea, and adversely affect its appetite.
Diabetes Shouldn’t Be Lethal
If you notice your dog or cat has begun to drink water excessively, that might indicate they have diabetes. Their behavior and appearance are also affected by this insidious disease. Dogs and cats diagnosed with diabetes can live long lives if their owners get their pets' conditions treated and monitored by our experienced veterinarians.
Our veterinarian can teach you how and when to administer insulin to your pet. In addition, we will instruct you on how to properly monitor your dog's or cat's glucose levels, so you can adjust the dose as needed to keep your pet healthy and feeling its best.
In addition to administering yearly rabies and other 7-in-1 shots, our Laguna Hills veterinarian will run diagnostic tests if your pet shows any signs of chronic illness. We maintain meticulous clinical records for every pet we treat, so establishing a baseline is important when your pet is still young.
