Common Symptoms

At MetroPet, we notice several trends in why clients bring their pets to us. Here are some of the most common symptoms we’ve seen, as well as how you can expect your loved one to be treated.

Itching and scratching in pets is one of the most common reasons people come to see us. It can be frustrating for owners and pets alike. But not to worry, we treat itching all of the time, and have an arsenal of ideas, treatments, and recommendations that can help you and your pet. Microscopic skin mites, fungus, bacteria, hormonal diseases, and allergies can all cause itching. To figure out the cause, our team will consult with you about your pet’s environment, diet, exposures, and so on. Our doctors will perform a complete exam. From there, we can develop a plan to get to the root of the cause for itching and work towards managing this pesky symptom.
