Local Medical Issues

Lyme Disease and Leptospirosis Are Here!

Lyme disease is carried by deer ticks, which are extremely common in our area. This disease can cause joint disease, fever, lameness and, in rare cases, kidney failure. Ticks are most common in spring and fall, but they can be active whenever the temperature goes above freezing, even in the middle of winter!

Leptospirosis is a bacterial disease that attacks the kidneys and liver. It can be fatal to both dogs and humans. The bacteria are spread through the urine of wild animals. If your dog is exposed to puddles, ponds, lakes, lawns or fields in our area, he or she is at risk for this disease and should be vaccinated against it.

Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.
