At Blue Door, we believe it is important to do a complete nose-to-tail exam on every pet, every visit. If your pet is apparently healthy, we will be creating a baseline to compare to in the future by performing a comprehensive exam. If your pet is feeling under the weather or exhibiting signs of illness, we will perform the same type of comprehensive exam to help sort out the cause of their illness. Our best friends are often very good at hiding their symptoms, so if you are seeing something wrong, their health issue may be even more serious than it appears!

Signs of Illness

We recommend knowing the signs of illness which a pet may exhibit so you can be prepared to call us with your concerns. Some signs of illness include:

  • Change in behavior (such as unwillingness to do a normal activity)
  • Constipation or not urinating
  • Accidents in the house (urine or feces)
  • Coughing
  • Crying or whining
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Drooling excessively
  • Lethargy/ Sleeping more than usual
  • Limping
  • Signs of blood in vomit or stool
  • Smell or substance coming from ears
  • Stumbling/ disorientation
