Chronic Disease Management

If your animal is suffering from a chronic disease, or you think they may be, our skilled veterinary team is here to provide the highest quality medical testing and treatment for your pet. We know you care about your pet’s well-being, and that you want them happy by your side for years to come. Unfortunately, there are a number of conditions that can jeopardize the health of your pet if left untreated. With the many advances made in veterinary healthcare, Yosemite Animal Hospital is pleased to provide you and your pet the care they deserve.

Diabetes is a common ongoing issue in mostly older animals, though some younger pets can be susceptible to it. Untreated, it’s a dangerous medical condition. With early detection and the right treatment plan, your diabetic animal can still live a wonderful life with you. It’s especially important to bring your older dogs and cats in for regular senior pet care exams to ensure that we catch diabetes early on.

Another issue we regularly see in furry companions is kidney disease. It’s vital to have an experienced veterinarian for your pet, as many kidney issues are often under-diagnosed or improperly treated. And just like with humans, your pet can develop problems with their thyroid gland. This is another condition that’s tough to diagnose due to the variety of symptoms that your cat or dog may experience. Our advanced screening techniques will help determine an accurate diagnosis for conditions like these and our talented veterinarian can provide options for the best courses of treatment in these cases.

Yosemite Veterinary Hospital provides excellent chronic disease management in the Modesto, Empire, Riverbank, OakDale, Manteca, Stockton and Turlock areas.
