North Shore Family Pet

General Medicine

Advanced Veterinary Care for your Furry Family Member

Should your pet require general medical care or develop a serious illness, the team of highly trained professionals at North Shore Family Pet Hospital are ready to diagnose and treat your pet and answer all the questions you may have. Our veterinarians will partner with you all along the way so that together you can best manage the care of your beloved pet. For many problems, there may be several different approaches to care, and the decision process for diagnosis and treatment at North Shore Family Pet Hospital is always a joint process.

Hospitalization

All of us at North Shore Family Pet Hospital understand that hospitalization can be a stressful time for both you and your pet. While in the hospital, your pet’s health and comfort is a priority to us. Excellent medical care combined with a compassionate staff to make your pet comfortable will help your pet to the quickest recovery possible. Our hospital is equipped with:

  • ICU equipped with sophisticated monitoring equipment and skilled nursing care
  • Separate cat and dog wards
  • A large treatment area
  • In-house laboratory
  • Isolation ward for pets with infectious disease
  • Fully-stocked pharmacy
  • Digital radiography
  • Pain management

Critical care patients and those recovering from anesthesia are closely monitored at all times. While hospitalized, we utilize multiple pain management therapies to control pain so your pet is as comfortable as possible until they are fully recovered.

Monitored Care of Chronic Conditions

If your pet has been diagnosed with a chronic condition (for example Cushings disease, diabetes or hypothyroidism) we will perform the routine monitoring that is needed to keep your pet healthy. We can make diet recommendations, recommend changes in medications and treatments, recommend a monitoring schedule, and also refer your pet to the appropriate specialty hospital if your pet is not responding appropriately to the treatments.

Dermatology

Allergies, skin problems and excessive scratching can make your pet miserable. Allergies in dogs and cats are treatable conditions that often show up as skin problems or ear infections. We will work closely with you to diagnose, treat and monitor any skin, ear, nail or pad problem your pet may have. We are trained to diagnose and treat a variety of dermatological conditions, such as:

  • Allergies (food, inhalants, contact and fleas)
  • Parasites (fleas and mites)
  • Autoimmune Diseases
  • Infectious Diseases (bacterial and fungal)
  • Hormonal Diseases
  • Recurring Ear Infections
  • Skin Cancer

If your dog or cat is exhibiting any of these symptoms, please call us for a dermatology appointment:

  • Continuous scratching
  • Face rubbing
  • Excessive licking of feet, legs and belly region
  • Hair loss
  • Recurring skin infections
  • Chronic anal sac problems
  • Biting and chewing at the skin
  • Ear infections
