At VCA Cloud Animal Hospital, we look forward to welcoming you, your dog, your cat, and other pets. Everyone on our staff believes the better we get to know your pets, the better we can provide the best possible healthcare for them. In fact, when you come in, you'll see exactly why our veterinarians are praised for their kind and thorough care. We'll give you and your pet all the time you need, and never rush through an exam. We'll also carefully track the course of your pet's care, which is so important to your pet's long-term health.
In every case, you'll be served by experienced, knowledgable members of our staff. Our veterinarians, veterinary technicians and other pet-friendly personnel are trained to the highest standards. Their knowledge of the latest veterinary medicines and procedures ensures that all our pet patients get the best in prevention and healing methods.
Local Medical IssuesThere are numerous local medical issues that can impact your pet's health and which require your attention year-round. For example, there's heartworm disease. Heartworm can affect both cats and dogs and is transmitted by mosquitoes, which thrive in our region. It's a serious cause for concern. And since our winter temperatures are not cold enough to kill mosquito eggs, it's a year-round risk.
Likewise for the potential for flea and tick infestation, or intestinal parasites, each of which can pose problems in any season.
And finally, contrary to what you'd expect, allergies are a year-round issue. Many pets suffer from skin and ear allergies, the signs of which include scratching, redness in the ears and scaly skin.
