Pet Illness

Veterinarian Treatment for When Your Pet Needs It Most

Most people think that disease and serious illnesses do not affect their pets until they become seniors. However, cats and dogs are at just as much risk of suffering from illness as we are.  Understanding the risks to your pet’s health allows you to provide him or her with the quality health care they deserve. Here at Oakland Park Animal Hospital, our team can help to diagnose your pet’s illness and treat the condition accordingly.


Treating Your Pet Illness

It is difficult to say what is going on with your pet until you bring them into our office. Sometimes the situation can be as simple as an allergic reaction. If your pet has flaky skin, gunky ears, or other skin related problems, it is likely due to seasonal allergies or something he or she ate. However, if your pet is not demonstrating obvious signs of an issue, it can be hard to figure out what is wrong on your own. If your pet is acting lethargic, it may be a sign that he or she is dealing with a serious illness. 

Make sure to notice when anything is out of the ordinary for your pet. Other signs of your pet having an illness are diarrhea, excessive biting or scratching, irritability, excessive hair loss, trouble breathing, or mucus discharge. The smallest of details you notice can have the biggest effect on forming the proper diagnosis for your pet. We will perform a complete physical examination and will order any tests necessary. We want to make sure you know exactly what is going on with your pet.

  • "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!"
