Medical Care

Nothing is more frustrating and alarming than when your best friend is sick and you don’t know what to do to help. Pets can’t talk to us but, it doesn’t mean they don’t communicate. Owners tell us “he’s just not acting himself” and it is our job to investigate and find answers that help.

The veterinarians at Macungie Animal Hospital are your pet’s primary veterinarian.  They start your pet’s appointment with a comprehensive physical exam and specifically address any problems they find or concerns that you convey. As general practitioners, they are experts in preventive care, nutrition, parasitology, dentistry, surgery, internal medicine, dermatology, ophthalmology, pediatrics, geriatrics, end-of-life care, and more.  They frequently create deep and multigenerational relationships with pet families.

Whether you are seeing acute or chronic symptoms, your pet may be suffering from an unseen disease that will affect her health and longevity. Our veterinarians emphasize non-invasive diagnostic treatment and techniques for diseases such as diabetes, Addison’s disease, chronic kidney disease and other internal medicine presentations.

Pet owner surveys tell us one of the most troublesome chronic diseases for pets and their owners is skin disease. Late-night scratching, tender skin, open sores, and hair loss need not be an inescapable part of your life. We have treatments and medications to help.

Heart health is particularly important as your pet ages. Appropriate exercise and nutrition provide a strong foundation during your pet’s adult years but even then, heart disease may develop as they age.  Our veterinarians can address many cardiac problems through a variety of treatment options.

When your pet needs specialized care we personally connect you with local veterinary specialists.  We work closely with local cardiologists, internists, oncologists, dermatologists, and more to ensure that advanced forms of treatment are available to mitigate the disease process and improve your pet’s everyday life.
