Local Medical Issues

There are many diseases that can affect our pets, especially here in the Northeast. Two of these conditions include Lyme disease and leptospirosis. Lyme disease is transmitted to dogs through the bite of a tick. Once in the blood stream, the organism that causes Lyme disease is carried to many parts of the body, and is likely to localize in joints. Symptoms can include lameness, swollen joints, sudden fever and loss of appetite. Veterinarians use blood tests for confirmation of Lyme disease, and treatment usually consists of

Thank you

I recently had an emergency situation with my dog, Strummer, and we had to visit the 24 hour Emergency Service Department at VCA South Shore.

From the moment we came through the door the staff was kind, patient, understanding, and quick. Assessing the situation and comforting us came naturally to each and every staff member. Dr. Nicole Govoni was both professional and knowledgeable, and explained everything to us. Dr. Govoni allowed us to see Strummer before leaving him there for the night, and called us later to explain what had transpired since we had left him there. We felt very comfortable leaving him in your care because we could see that each and every person was dedicated to providing the best care possible.

The following morning the doctor called us again, and gave us an update. This put us at ease and really helped us to relax for the day. At pick up the staff again explained everything to us, including after care instructions.

Strummer is now home safe and sound recovering with us all thanks to the amazing staff at VCA South Shore. We could never thank you enough for doing what you do every day, and hope you all know how much you are appreciated.
