At Cotswold Animal Hospital, we are equipped with the expertise and medical equipment to treat your pet, from emergencies to routine checkups to treatment of long-term disease. Our goal is to keep your pet a healthy and happy member of your family.
We provide general veterinary medicine for your dog or cat, including:
General Internal Medicine. When your pet is hurt or ill, we know you want the very best treatment for your pet. We are committed to diagnosing, treating and monitoring any health condition your pet may have. We will help you find the answers to your pet’s medical conditions and improve your pet’s quality of life. Commonly diagnosed medical problems such as diabetes, kidney disease, liver disease and thyroid disease can be treated with the most current medical or surgical protocols.
Monitored Care of Chronic Conditions. Once your pet has been diagnosed with a chronic condition (for example diabetes or hypothyroidism) we can perform the routine monitoring that is needed to keep your pet healthy. We can make diet recommendations, recommend changes in medications and treatments, recommend a monitoring schedule, and also refer your pet to the appropriate specialty service if the condition changes or is not responding appropriately to the treatments.
Dermatology. Allergies, skin problems and excessive scratching can make your pet miserable. Allergies in dogs and cats are treatable conditions that often show up as skin or ear problems. We will work closely with you to diagnose, treat and monitor any skin, ear, nail or pad problem your pet may have. We are here to help your pet with problems such as diseases of the skin, dog or cat ear infections or immune-mediated problems.
Behavior. Behavioral problems can be the one biggest frustration many pet owners face. The staff at Cotswold Animal Hospital has the experience to help you solve new and chronic behavioral problems. The first step in controlling or changing these behaviors is to discuss them with us to rule out any medical component. We strive to help our clients learn the reasons for their pet’s behavior and then find realistic options for a treatment plan to make your pet a better family member.
