Common conditions information

All of our pets are unique, but many of the conditions that they can suffer from are seen by our vets and nurses often on a daily basis. We have complied some basic information and recommended links on these common conditions to help you understand how we treat or manage them.

  • Hyperthyroidism - overactive thyroid gland, a condition seen commonly in elderly cats
  • Hypothyroidism - underactive throid gland, a condition seen more commonly in dogs
  • Chronic Renal Failure - a geriatric kidney disease of cats and dogs
  • Diabetes - a common condition for both cats and dogs
  • FLUTD - feline lower urinary tract disease
  • Cushings Disease - overproduction of cortisol, a hormone from the adrenal gland in dogs
  • Degeneritive Joint Disease - arthritis
