As a general veterinary practice for companion animals, we at Lakeside Animal Clinic are equipped to handle prevention, diagnosis and treatment of many common, and some not-so-common diseases of dogs and cats. We use accurate and complete histories, comprehensive physical examination, various diagnostic tests, in-house hospital facilities, and a fully-stocked pharmacy to accomplish these tasks.
We approach each medicine case with the philosophy of evaluating the whole animal, which allows diagnosis and treatment of underlying conditions, not just treatment of symptoms.
Some of the more common conditions we diagnose and treat include:
Dermatological Problems, such as skin allergies, flea allergies, mange, fungal infections, food allergy, and immune-mediated skin conditions.
Cardiopulmonary Conditions, such as heartworm disease, congestive heart failure, asthma, bronchitis, kennel cough, pneumonia, upper respiratory infections, canine distemper, collapsing trachea, mitral valve degeneration, and pulmonary cancer.
Neurological Conditions, such as Degenerative Disk Disease, Degenerative Myelopathy, Vestibular Disease, and head trauma.
Orthopedic Conditions, such as bone fractures, osteoarthritis, congenital joint dysplasias, and traumatic injury.
Gastrointestinal Diseases, such as gastroenteritis, colitis, parvo virus, bloat, inflammatory bowel disease, foreign body ingestion, and intestinal parasites.
Urinary tract conditions, such as bladder infections, bladder stones, kidney failure, urinary obstruction, and bladder tumors.
Dental disease, such as broken teeth, retained baby teeth, dental tartar, gingivitis, and stomatitis.
Intoxications, such as antifreeze toxicity, rat poison toxicity, strychnine poisoning, and pesticide poisoning.
