Common Pet Problems

Common Pet Problems

Pets are fun and loving companions. At the same time, they’re a lot of work, especially when it comes to health care. Common pet problems can turn into major health issues if they’re not treated properly. Quality pet care services from Trilby Animal Hospital in Toledo will help keep your kit or pup in good health. If your pet shows signs of the following issues, bring him in for prompt and efficient care.


Vomiting is a common problem among dogs and cats. If your pet vomits consistently over a period of several days, bring him to Trilby Animal Hospital for urgent care. Watch out for such symptoms as heaving, drooling, diarrhea and blood in his stools or vomit. If your pet isn’t holding down liquids, seek urgent care before he becomes dehydrated.


Although fleas are common in pets, they can cause a lot of harm if not taken care of promptly. Flea allergies could cause serious skin conditions and infections. Symptoms of fleas include constant scratching, licking or biting, red, irritated skin, hair loss and skin infections. Your cat could become anemic if the problem persists. Our veterinarians can recommend parasite control treatments that can rid your pet of these pests.


Many pets suffer from seasonal allergies that cause rashes, inflammation and irritations on their skin. Constant scratching can lead to open sores, infections and hair loss. Allergies can be diagnosed and treated by our clinic’s veterinarians.

Periodontal Disease

Most dogs and cats develop periodontal disease within the first five years of their life, even though this can be prevented with regular dental care. Annual dental cleanings can protect your pet from plaque and tartar buildup that can lead to periodontal disease. We’ll even polish your pet’s teeth to leave them sparkling clean.
