Sick or Injured Pet?

book your sick pet into our clinicA healthy pet is content, alert and active, has an appetite and maintains a healthy weight for his type and breed.

Since cats and dogs can’t complain when they’re not feeling well, you’ll have to watch for changes in their behaviour and routines. Cats, especially, may “hide” symptoms until they are seriously ill.

While no diagnosis can ever be made without seeing your pet, there are certain signs to look out for and recognize that your pet requires medical attention, but most importantly trust your instinct.
