What Conditions Do We Treat?

Internal Medicine

Internal medicine addresses systemic and persistent ailments that can impact your pet's general wellbeing. From gastrointestinal issues to respiratory problems and endocrine disorders, we provide specialized care to ensure accurate diagnoses and effective treatment plans for your pet.

Allergies and Dermatology

Pet allergies and dermatological issues can be distressing for your furry friend. Our experienced veterinarians are skilled at diagnosing and treating these conditions, ensuring your pet gets the relief they need.

Call us if you notice any of these common dermatological symptoms:

  • Constant scratching
  • Licking, chewing, or biting a particular area
  • Excessive head shaking
  • Malodorous ears
  • Reddened paws
  • Hives or another rash
  • Bumps or lumps on or beneath your pet’s skin
  • Excessive dander from flaking or scabbed skin
  • Excessive shedding and/or bald spots

Chronic Disease Management

Some diseases are treatable with a single round of antibiotics or may resolve naturally. Chronic conditions, however, pose a more complex challenge. These conditions persist throughout a pet's life. Although not always fully curable, many chronic diseases can be managed using long-term medications. Our dedicated veterinarians collaborate closely with you to create a customized treatment plan to enhance your pet's quality of life.

What Does Nutritional Counseling Include?

Maintaining your pet's weight is a key factor in promoting a long and vibrant life. Proper nutrition and the management of a healthy weight significantly reduce the risk of conditions such as:

  • Allergies
  • Arthritis and other joint problems
  • Bad breath (pee-ew)
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes and kidney disease
  • Obesity
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Skin and coat disorders

Lab Diagnostics, Ultrasound, and X-ray

Our commitment to your pet's well-being is reflected in our advanced in-house lab and diagnostic tools. These state-of-the-art resources enable us to precisely identify the underlying causes of your pet's illness. Some of the tools we use include:

  • Ultrasound: Ultrasounds allows us to visualize your pet's internal organs and tissues, which aids in the early detection of abnormalities.
  • X-rays: Pets that need an X-ray are referred to a traditional brick and mortar hospital near you. Our veterinarians immediately receive the images via email for interpretation where we will develop a personalized course of treatment.

When your beloved pet faces health challenges, Capital Home Veterinary Care is your trusted partner for comprehensive sick care services. To schedule a sick care visit, call us or request an appointment. Your pet's health and well-being remain our top priorities.
