Symptoms for These Diseases

If your cat or dog display any of symptoms below, take them to our animal hospital as soon as you can. Animals do not display pain or discomfort unless it is serious. If you see a change in behavior or anything else that is abnormal for your pet, keep a close eye on them and bring them to our veterinarians to get checked out.

Your pet may experience pain, loss of appetite, lack of interest in drinking, abnormal walking or running, urinating and defecating in uncommon areas, and abnormal physical signs, such as sores on the skin. Pacing, whining, growling, and lying in an uncomfortable position are all signs of pain that should be addressed.

If your pet suddenly shows lack of interest in eating and drinking or is in pain while moving, then your pet needs to be seen by our veterinarians for immediate treatment.

How We Care for Your Pet

Our San Diego veterinarians at Tierrasanta Veterinary Hospital will treat your pet based on their diagnosis. We offer wellness plans, preventative medicine, dental cleanings, emergency services, and surgery. We make sure that your pet gets the upmost care so that your pet can be healthy again.

What You Can Do to Help

Bring your cat or dog in to have their yearly wellness care exam so that we can catch these diseases early on and treat them before they become serious. Fill out our New Patient form from home and bring it to your pet’s appointment. We look forward to helping you!
