At Ashworth Road Animal Hospital in West Des Moines, IA, we can also offer pet care for families in Windsor Heights, IA, Clive, IA, and Urbandale, IA. Here are some of the conditions we may treat in dogs, cats, reptiles and other pets.
Pet Care for Vomiting and Diarrhea
Vomiting and diarrhea are symptoms of an underlying issue, such as gastrointestinal upset. These two symptoms are caused by a range of issues. Your pet may have ingested something, be stressed, or have a viral or bacterial infection. Food sensitivities and allergies are two other potential reasons why your pet is having problems with keeping food down and eliminating properly. As part of our veterinary services, we can help determine why your pet is having problems, and we may recommend medication, surgery, and other treatments to help your pet feel better.
Veterinary Care for Urinary Tract Infections
Pets are prone to urinary tract infections. Blood in the urine and painful urination are two other signs of problems. It can be important to seek veterinary care as soon as possible. Urinary tract infections can be quite painful and harmful to your pet.
