Nose and Throat Diseases of Pets

Last week at our weekly staff training we discussed common diseases that affect the noses and throats of pets. Your cat or dog can have respiratory infections caused by bacteria, viruses and fungi. Short nosed breeds such as pugs, bulldogs and persian cats are often affected by respiratory problems due to their small nostrils and short mouths. These pets may be cured even before they have problems with surgery. If you notice changes to they way your pet is breathing please contact us as soon as possible as some conditions are life threatening.
