Metabolic & Endocrine

Pets, Like Their People, Can Experience Metabolic & Endocrine Troubles

It is common knowledge that when a human's hormones fall out of balance, that the whole-body system shows symptoms in troubling ways. Did you know that your pets can experience the same type of issues? Oakland Park Animal Hospital is your answer to your search for a "veterinarian near me" if you are concerned about troubling behavior or symptoms in your pet. We serve Oakland Park, FL, with quality comprehensive services year-round.


What Are Signs of Metabolic & Endocrine Issues in Your Pet?

When something goes awry in the hormonal system of people, they may find themselves emotional, tired, weak, manic, and their weight may fluctuate. The signs may also be subtle and come on slowly. Like with people, there is no one simple tell-tale symptom to say clearly that your pet has a metabolic or endocrine issue. Some signs include unexpected weight fluctuations without noticeable changes in diet, lack of energy or enthusiasm, hair loss, and skin issues. If you know your pet well and notice any changes in behavior, do not ignore it.  

What Can a Veterinarian Do to Help?

First, we will test to identify if your pet's symptoms are caused by a hormonal imbalance. If that is the case, we will provide treatment to rebalance the body. Insulin injections are one example of this. We will work with you to help make sure your pet has a happy and healthy life. No matter your pet's prognosis, we are here to maximize comfort and longevity. There are many things that may cause a pet to have symptoms of a hormonal or endocrine issue and we are qualified to treat all of them.

  • "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."

  • "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!"
