Caring Veterinarians in Freeburg, IL

When your pet seems to be slightly off in its behavior, you might be witnessing the first signs of sickness. In most cases, animals will attempt to mask the symptoms and signs of their sickness. This behavior is a natural protective instinct used in the wild to prevent shunning and/or attacks by predators. Any subtle change in your pet's normal behavior could be an indicator of illness.

Dr. Stanley Niemann is a member of many veterinary medicine affiliations and associations. As owner and veterinarian, he provides comprehensive medical care to pets of all shapes and sizes. If your pet is experiencing a health problem, contact our office today. We're ready to help!

Acute moist dermatitis, more commonly known as hot spots, occurs due to a bacterial infection on your pet’s skin. Your dog or cat will naturally bite, chew, lick or scratch his skin in response to an irritant. Unfortunately for your pet, this tends to increase rather than decrease his discomfort. Anal gland disease, allergies to fleas or food ingredients, mange, tick bites, and inadequate grooming are the primary causes of hot spots in companion animals.
