A Focus on Endocrinology
The endocrine system produces the hormones that control several important functions in your pet’s body. These functions include the management of your pet’s body temperature, appetite, metabolism, development, and reproductive functions. Since the endocrine system is important to your pet’s overall health, we take special care to monitor it.
Among the most common disorders related to the endocrine system are thyroid and adrenal disease. These illnesses are much more common in older pets. Symptoms vary, but may include weight gain or loss, hair loss, excessive eating, or a rapid heartbeat.
We can perform a variety of diagnostic tests in order to identify issues early on. Preventive blood tests will also allow us to check your pet’s hormone levels and organ function.
Endocrine disorders and other internal diseases can be very serious, so it’s always better for diagnosis to happen sooner rather than later. Regular exams allow our medical staff to identify problems early on and take the necessary measures to keep your pet healthy. Call us today to set up an appointment.
