Conditions Treated

At Rathburn Animal Clinic in Etobicoke, we take pride in being a comprehensive veterinary clinic, offering a range of services to address various conditions that can impact your pet's health, including allergies and emergencies.

Pet Allergies

Pet allergies are a prevalent concern that we routinely manage in our office. Pets may exhibit symptoms such as skin rashes, lesions, and persistent itching. Additionally, signs like sneezing, coughing, wheezing, and frequent ear infections could indicate underlying allergies. Common culprits include pet food allergens like beef, dairy, eggs, chicken, soy, and wheat. Environmental allergens, such as household cleaners, dust, and pollen, also play a role. Some pets even develop allergies to fleas, reacting adversely to flea bites.

Pet Infections

Infections are another common occurrence in pets, covering a spectrum from ear infections and bladder infections to respiratory infections. Symptoms vary based on the type of infection but often include fever, lethargy, and loss of appetite. Our approach typically involves targeted antibiotic treatments to address the specific infection and promote a swift recovery.

Gastrointestinal Problems

Vomiting or diarrhea in pets raises concerns about potential gastrointestinal issues. Causes may range from food allergies and viral infections to more severe conditions like kidney infections or bloat. Prompt and accurate diagnosis is crucial for effective treatment. Severe cases might require supportive care, including IV fluids, while infections underlying these symptoms necessitate tailored treatment plans.

Pet Emergencies

Pet emergencies demand immediate attention and decisive action. Injuries leading to severe bleeding or pain, suspected ingestion of poisonous substances, difficulty breathing, blood in the stool, prolonged diarrhea or vomiting, lethargy, disorientation, and choking are all red flags requiring urgent veterinary care. Bloat, a condition where a dog's stomach twists, preventing normal bodily functions, is a critical emergency. If uncertain, don't hesitate to contact us for guidance on the best course of action.


Parasites are a recurring concern, and prevention is key. Medications, including flea, tick, and Heartworm preventatives, form the frontline defense. Intestinal parasites, more common in puppies but also affecting adult pets, are effectively treated with deworming medications, ensuring your pet's continued well-being.
