Veterinary video presentations at Alta Rancho Pet & Bird Hospital help our clients understand the nature of their pet’s problems. We pride ourselves on helping our clients participate in their pets care through direct consultation, prepared handouts and video presentations. Our patients from Alta Loma, Rancho Cucamonga, Upland, Ontario, Claremont, Fontana, and the Inland Empire represent many different species with differing nutritional, medical, dental, and grooming needs. We have a large library of interesting articles and handouts regarding each of their care located in our library.
We know that many topics can be more readily understood with video presentations than with written handouts. Therefore, we’ve created a number of veterinary video presentations about pet care topics for you to enjoy. After watching a video, feel free to ask our doctors with any other questions that might arise.

How to administer drugs to your bird
Brachycephalic (Snub Nosed Breed Respiratory Syndrome)
Brachycephalic syndrome is also known as “snub nosed breed” respiratory system because it only affects dog breeds with a compacted muzzle. Flattened breathing passages, narrow nostrils, and tissue inside the windpipe cause this condition, but your dog’s lungs are affected too. Watch this video to learn more about the biological causes and effects, and what you can do to minimize your snub nosed dog’s breathing problems.
Canine Hyperadrenocorticism or Cushing’s Syndrome
Canine Hyperadrenocorticism or Cushing’s syndrome is an endocrine (hormonal) disorder affected many older dogs. This presentation describes Cushing’s syndrome in the dog, how we diagnose it and how we treat it.
Diabetes for Pet Owners
Diabetic dogs and cats can still live a long and healthy life; they just need the proper treatment and dietary changes. Learn exactly how diabetes affects your pet’s body, what steps you can take to prevent complications such as cataracts and appetite loss, how to administer insulin at home.
We treat pets who live throughout Fontana and the Inland Empire, including Upland, Alta Loma, Rancho Cucamonga, Claremont, and Ontario. These educational veterinary presentations are designed to inform our patients’ owners from the comfort of home, wherever that may be. To learn more about these and other veterinary topics in person, call us at (909) 980-3575 to schedule an appointment.
Diabetes: Freestyle Libre Upload Instructions
Your dog can’t tell you about earaches or irritation inside the ear canal, but the consequences of obstructions and untreated infections are painful and potentially life-threatening. It’s very important to prevent ear problems before they happen. Our veterinarian will walk you through the anatomy of healthy and unhealthy ears, the solutions and products we use to treat and clean ears, and perform an ear-cleaning on camera with an actual patient.
Esophagostomy Feeding Tubes in Cats
Hip Dysplasia and JPS Surgery
Canine hip dysplasia describes an irregularly shaped hip joint that may eventually affect your dog’s mobility and comfort. Learn which dog breeds are more likely to inherit this condition, how you can minimize his or her risks through exercise and nutrition, and how we decide whether dogs are good candidates for corrective Juvenile Pubic Symphysiodesis (JPS) surgery.
Mitral Valve Disease in Dogs
New Puppy Information
Dogs have unique health needs that start at birth, and the earlier you start their wellness regimen, the better their odds at a happy and comfortable life. We’ll walk you through the basics of your puppy’s first physical examination, then explain how you can meet their nutritional, dental, and behavioral needs at home.
Penn-Hip testing is a method to detect canine hip dysplasia as early as 16 weeks of age. This video explains how Penn-hip testing works and compares it to testing using the OFA or Orthopedic Foundation for Animals method. Finally, this video explains how to interpret the results from a Penn-Hip study.
