Recognizing Illnesses in St. John’s

At the Avalon Animal Hospital, we want to make sure that your pet stays healthy for years to come. When it comes to recognizing illnesses in St. John’s-area pets, there are can be many signs and symptoms to be aware of. The American Veterinary Medical Association suggests that you consult your veterinarian if you notice your pet displaying any of the following issues or behaviours:

  • Abnormal discharges from the nose, eyes or other body openings
  • Abnormal behaviour, sudden viciousness or lethargy
  • Abnormal lumps, limping or difficulty getting up or lying down
  • Loss of appetite, marked weight losses or gains, or excessive water consumption
  • Difficult, abnormal or uncontrolled waste elimination
  • Excessive head shaking, scratching and licking or biting any part of the body
  • Dandruff, loss of hair, open sores or a ragged or dull coat
  • Foul breath or excessive tarter deposits on teeth
