Conditions Treated at Wheeling Animal Hospital
Pets are as big a part of our families as human members, and we want them to live long and healthy lives. You can't stop your pet from getting sick, but you can ensure it receives the best veterinary care. We put your pet's well-being first at Wheeling Animal Hospital, serving the communities of Wheeling, Arlington Heights, and Chicago, IL. We treat many conditions, and here are the most common ones.
Your pet can't tell you when it feels ill, and identifying the cause of the issue can be tricky. That's why we treat general illnesses your pet may be suffering from, such as nausea, vomiting, lethargy, and other causes of discomfort. Once we identify your pet's issue, we can provide comprehensive treatment plans to help it recover quickly.
While we often envy our pet's ability to live exclusively in the present moment, it can cause issues. Your cat's decision to jump to the top of a bookshelf or your dog's determination to run across the street to chase a squirrel can have disastrous consequences. Whether it's an open wound, fracture, sprain, or other injury, we have treatment options to stop the injury from causing further damage later.
Pets can develop various environmental, food, and flea allergies. Dogs with allergies often exhibit itchy skin, which can cause them to scratch, lick, or bite themselves excessively. This can lead to hair loss, red and irritated skin, and secondary infections.
Diabetes is a metabolic disorder that affects pets of all ages and breeds. It happens when your pet lacks insulin or is unable to use insulin properly, resulting in high sugar levels. Signs of diabetes in pets include excessive thirst and urination, weight loss, decreased appetite, cloudy eyes, and chronic or recurring infections.
Heartworm disease happens when a parasitic worm moves into your pet's heart and lungs. Early signs of this potentially fatal disease can include coughing, lethargy, and difficulty breathing.
