Pet Illness

Owning a pet is much more than simply having an animal around. For many people, their pets are members of their families. This brings a new sense of responsibility to pet ownership. Part of this responsibility is providing appropriate care for your pets when they become ill. At Best Care Animal Hospital, serving Houston, TX, we understand that your pet’s health is a serious matter. That is why we strive to provide the best possible care for your pets when they are sick. Keep reading to learn more.


Pet illness is vastly different from human illness because your pet cannot communicate to you when something is wrong. This can be a huge hurdle in the effort to keep your pet healthy. In some cases, an owner may not even know that there is a problem with a pet until the pet begins to exhibit severe symptoms of illness. In many cases, by the time a pet comes in for a visit with a veterinarian, the issue is advanced. This makes it very important for pet owners to keep a careful watch on their pets for any changes in behavior, eating habits, sleeping habits, or temperament. Giving your pet a miniature health exam each day while you are playing or grooming can give you an advantage on identifying potential illness.

Emergency Pet Care

When there is a problem with your pet, we can provide emergency care for illness in Spring, Tomball, and Houston, TX. Our urgent care facilities are equipped to handle most pet emergencies. We can quickly provide your animal with a pet exam and emergency pet care when needed. Our veterinarians are trained to deliver diagnostics and treatments quickly to help your pet recover.

Because treatments can be performed on site, we can speed treatment time for your animal to increase chances of recovery. When a pet must be transported to another facility, critical time can be lost in emergency treatment.    

In addition to emergency pet care, we're also a full-service veterinarian clinic and can help keep your pet healthy. Keeping up to date on your pet’s regular checkups and shots is the best way to prevent pet illness.
