Metabolic & Endocrine Diseases 101

Your pet's metabolism is the process pf a number of systems that work together and give cells nutrition, which the cells then transform into energy. A number of symptoms could happen that indicate that there is something wrong with the metabolic or endocrine system in your pet. Naturally, each disorder demonstrates different symptoms. However, some symptoms of endocrine or metabolic disorders include constant hungriness, unusual weight loss or weight gain despite eating normally, and more. 

Common Metabolic & Endocrine Diseases

As previously stated, one of the endocrine diseases that you see in pets is diabetes. Of course, you see this disease in humans, as well. Another one of the common diseases you find in pets is thyroid disorders.

There are a number of thyroid disorders that can happen in pets. These disorders can have a number of causes. Some of these disorders are genetic, while others can happen due to obesity or normal aging in pets. You can talk to our “veterinarian near me” to learn more about these disorders. 

How Do We Treat Metabolic and Endocrine Diseases?

Medication is the typical treatment for metabolic and endocrine diseases in pets. Pharmaceutical companies that create veterinary drugs have come up with a number of medications that can help treat metabolic and endocrine diseases in pets. Your pet may have to take its medication daily and he may have to keep taking this medication for the rest of his life. Our vet will examine your pet when you bring it to our practice. At that time, we can tell you more about these medications.

  • "AWESOME, Dr. Spencer Ratnoff is the best he treated my cat for a fractured top k9 tooth, when He finished with him, he looked like he was born without a k9 tooth. He did that surgery so well it’s refreshing a Dr that actually cares, his team is wonderful and very attentive, I left a message and not even 10 minutes later, I got a call back. My family is forever grateful .thank you for everything."
    Maryem K.
  • "I initially had a bad experience due to the Doctor that was in on that day. I returned for a checkup for my girl 'Cali' 'Cat' and the energy Dr. Ratnoff had was much better with my girl as she can be very temperamental. I was very pleased during this visit as Dr. Ratnoff had more patience and better vibe as our pets sense negative energy. Its a shame my first experience was not pleasant but I will be back and only ensure Dr. Ratnoff with my girl. Thankyou Doc!"
