Common Pet Problems

Pet problems come in many forms. Some are behavioral problems and others are health issues. Pets can suffer from both and when your pet suffers, you suffer along with it. Most common pet problems can be discussed with your veterinarian during a routine exam, but others may require a more urgent approach. Bridgerland-Cache Animal Hospital has been a full-service veterinary practice since 1949. If you live in or around Logan, UT, contact one of our veterinarians to discuss your pet’s problem.

Aggression

Aggression is a serious problem, whether it is from a cat or a dog. It can lead to serious injuries for other pets and owners. Speak with our veterinarians about possible causes and if behavior modification is possible. Never treat aggression casually. People are killed every year by their dogs and seriously injured by their cats. Some animals are just not meant to be pets, and while it is a heartbreaking decision, it may have to be made.

Separation Anxiety

If your pet gets destructive while you are away from home, it could be that it just misses you and is suffering from separation anxiety. Let's face it, you could crate your pet and take care of the destruction, but not the anxiety, and if howling is part of the reaction, it will continue. Your pet needs to know that you will return. Correcting this problem is not easy, it takes time and reassurance that being alone is a good thing. Speak with our veterinarians for tips.

Arthritis

Arthritis is a common condition in middle-aged and senior pets. You may notice that your pet limps or has difficulty jumping onto chairs or climbing stairs. Supplements like glucosamine chondroitin can help.

Vomiting

Pets vomit for many reasons. Some pets eat their food too fast and promptly vomit it back up. Other pets will vomit hairballs from licking themselves. While it may be annoying, it is not necessarily serious. However, if you notice changes in your pet's behavior like lethargy, it is time to visit the veterinarian’s office.
