Veterinary endocrinology involves the diagnosis and treatment of pet ailments involving the endocrine system. Endocrine disorders are serious medical conditions and—without proper care—can be potentially life threatening to your pet. Early diagnosis and aggressive treatment can minimize the long-term health consequences to your pet. Common endocrine disorders include:
- Cushing’s disease
- Addison’s disease
Our veterinary team is experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of pet endocrine disorders. We will thoroughly examine your pet and review laboratory tests to determine the underlying cause of your pet’s condition. Many pet endocrine conditions respond well to treatment, and early diagnosis and treatment reduces the negative impact to your pet’s overall health and wellness.
Please contact us if you notice any of the common symptoms of endocrine problems in your pet such as:
- Changes in weight
- Reduction in vision
- Increased thirst and urination
- Thinning hair or hair loss
Striegel Animal Hospital understands the stress and anxiety associated with an ailing pet. We have the latest in diagnostic equipment and testing to rapidly and accurately diagnose your pet’s condition. Your pet may be experiencing various lumps and bumps, and our veterinary team is committed to identifying the underlying cause, and developing a treatment plan. Not all abnormal growths are cancerous, but it is important to have your pet checked as soon as possible to determine the next steps.
After a confirmed diagnosis of cancer, we can administer chemotherapy treatments at our convenient location. We work in conjunction with board-certified oncologists to monitor your pet’s progress and to adjust treatments as necessary.
We also offer advanced pain management programs to keep your pet comfortable. These include the pet laser therapy treatments and pain medications. We are here to support you and your pet, and we are available to answer any questions you may have regarding your pet’s diagnosis or treatment.
Dermatology involves veterinary medical conditions related to the skin and coat of your pet. There are many potential causes of pet dermatologic conditions, such as parasites, allergies, or infections. Proper diagnosis of the underlying cause of your pet’s condition leads to the development of effective treatments.
During your pet’s exam, we will explore all of the potential sources for your pet’s condition. Your pet’s coat will be examined for parasites, such as fleas and ticks. There are many potential treatments for external parasites such as medicated baths and flea and tick medications. We also offer pet laser therapy treatments.
We are able to perform a diagnostic blood test to determine if your pet’s dermatologic condition is the result of environmental allergies. After the specific allergen is identified we are able to tailor specific desensitizing vaccinations, which can be administered at our office or at home.
Your pet’s food may also be a source for potential allergens. We have a variety of prescription diets available to find a nutritional formula that works best to minimize or eliminate your pet’s symptoms.
