You’ve heard the saying, “When you’ve got your health—you’ve got everything.” Well, at the Irvine Pet Hospital, we feel the same way about the health of your pet.
Actually, your pet’s health needs are relatively similar to yours.Your pet needs good food, clean water, exercise, adequate housing, and love. Those are the most basic points of any pet care program. Regular check ups, accompanied by vaccinations and age appropriate medicines, are necessary as well.
Although their needs can be similar to yours, symptoms that animals exhibit may mean quite a different thing than their human counterparts. On the other pages of this website, you will find information concerning different stages and aspects of your pet’s health. Reading each section and adhering to recommended guidelines is optimal for both you and your pet. Actively participating in your pet’s care is encouraged.
When you visit us, we recommend that you bring a stool sample with you in a clean container (a sandwich bag is great)—this gives us a sample for testing without causing your pet undue trauma during its examination.
We encourage you to call and ask us any questions that you might have regarding your animal’s health. We feel that it is much better to be safe than sorry.
