Indoor Cats Need Physicals Too!

Indoor Cats Need Physicals Too!

Cats are masters at disguising pain and disease which is why it’s important that our feline friends are getting the medical care they need. South Town’s goal is to provide you with the information you need to make informed medical decisions for your pet. Our vets recommend yearly physical examinations for these furry family members…here’s why.

Top 4 Signs Your Pet Has Allergies

Top 4 Signs Your Pet Has Allergies

When an animal’s immune system recognizes everyday substances (allergens) as dangerous-your pet will show symptoms of allergies. Some pets may have extreme reactions to these allergens which include trees, grass, mold spores, feathers, cigarette smoke, fleas and food-just to name a few.

Spring is here…

Spring is here…


It’s March-Spring is officially here. (Although it might not feel that way here in South Elgin)

You may not know that your pet’s yearly checkup is essential to their health and wellbeing. It’s as important as feeding them daily and loving them forever. It’s the best way to keep your pet healthier, longer! Remember: Pets age faster than we do, so missing even one yearly checkup can be like us not visiting a doctor for over five years!

During our veterinarian’s physical exam, your pet gets checked from tongue to teeth to toes to tail (plus all the parts in between)! This in-depth, medical checkup not only confirms your pet’s current health status, but also helps to prevent future problems, such as obesity, periodontal disease and diabetes. At this time, it also gives us the opportunity to discuss all the ways to keep your pet in good shape and answer all of your questions. We can cover any topic you want in the comfort of our exam room.

We’re grateful for your trust in us to recommend what’s best for your pet. Call us today to schedule their appointment (your pet will be thankful too). Happy Spring from all of us!
