Sick Pet FAQs

Understanding your concerns when your pet is unwell is crucial to us. We invite you to ask any questions or worries you might have. We'll be there for you to help you feel confident about your cat or dog's care plan. Below are some frequently asked questions we encounter about sick pets.

Should I be concerned about my dog's dry nose?

A moist and cool nose is typical for dogs, but a dry nose might suggest dehydration or fever. If your dog's nose remains dry for an extended period, it's advisable to contact us for further assessment.

Indeed, an abrupt switch in your cat's diet could lead to digestive upset. We recommend consulting our veterinarian before changing your cat's food, especially for those with sensitive stomachs. Introducing new food gradually, mixed with the current one, can help your cat adjust smoothly.

Dogs may eat grass out of boredom or because they enjoy the taste. It's also common for dogs to consume grass as a natural remedy to soothe an upset stomach, potentially leading to vomiting if they've ingested something disagreeable.
