Is your pet in pain or discomfort?
Presence of pain or discomfort
This is because dogs and cats do not always show the usual signs of pain or often just try to cover them up until the situation worsens.
What can you do
If you suspect that your pet may be in pain or experiencing some other form of discomfort, we recommend that you bring him or her for a checkup.
This examination will not only take into account your dog’s or cat’s previous medical history, but it will also go through a complete physical examination.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are you accepting new patients?
What to do if your pet has a wound?
In case of severe bleeding or pain, you will need to seek veterinary help immediately!
For more routine wounds – such as minor cuts and abrasions, broken toenails – you’ll still want to seek help as soon as possible.
This helps ensure that your pet does not aggravate the wound – or get an infection – by licking or scratching it.
If it is not possible to bring your pet right away, ask us what you can do in the meantime to keep the wound clean and protected until final treatment.

How to treat a wound before visiting a veterinarian?
It depends on how big and deep the wound is, as well as whether it is dirty or not.
In some cases, sutures and dressings may be needed, and in others only surface treatment may be needed.
It is advisable to examine your pet and its wound to know for sure.
