Common Pet Problems

Whether you are a new pet owner or have years of experience with a fur friend as part of your family, some pet problems are medical issues that require the help of a veterinarian. At Fleur Pet Hospital in Des Moines, IA, our professional staff and our veterinarian provide the services your pet needs. Our “veterinarian near me” is here to help.

About Common Pet Problems

The list of common pet problems is long but being aware of what types of conditions can affect your pet's health and require pet care is something pet owners can benefit from knowing. Several conditions, such as flea infestations, food and seasonal allergies, and behavior problems are a sampling of what your pet may experience.

Pet Conditions

There are many conditions that affect a pet's health with some more prevalent than others. The following is a list of some common pet medical problems.

  • Periodontitis (dental disease)
  • Skin allergies
  • Intestinal upset
  • Arthritis
  • Ear infections
  • Non-cancerous skin mass
  • Diarrhea
  • Fleas and ticks

How Our Pet Hospital Can Help

A good way to promote your pet's health is to schedule an appointment for a pet wellness exam with a veterinarian. The exam provides an overview of your pet's current systems plus your dog or cat can get up to date on important vaccinations. Bringing your pet to our pet hospital for an exam gives our vet an opportunity to diagnose any potential medical conditions early on and begin treatment.
