Allergies & Dermatology

Is your pet’s constant scratching keeping you both up at night?

Dermatological problems, like allergies, infections and other skin conditions could be making your pet miserable. Fortunately, we can help! Our team of skilled professionals is experienced in pet allergy and dermatology services. We’ll work hard to determine exactly what’s bothering your four-legged friend and develop a customized treatment plan that will get results.

When it comes to skin problems, there are two types of ailments: primary and secondary. Primary skin conditions are those that directly affect the outside of your pet’s body, including the skin and coat. These may include mange, topical allergies, infections or reactions from external parasites. Secondary skin disorders are more complex, as they originate in other areas and manifest through reactions on the skin. For instance, a bacterial infection within your pet’s body could cause an external rash.

The first step in the process is determining precisely what type of condition we’re dealing with. Some of the more common dermatological diseases and conditions that we can assist with include:

  • Allergies
  • Bacterial Infections
  • Hot Spots
  • Dermatitis
  • Fungal Infections
  • Hormonal Imbalances
  • Autoimmune Diseases
  • Ear Infections
  • Foot Disease
  • Tumors
  • Skin Cancer

The course of treatment we recommend will depend on the specific condition, its severity and a number of other unique factors. We will work closely with you to develop a plan everyone can feel comfortable with. Treatments may include the use of antibiotics, steroids, topical medication, dietary supplements, special shampoo products or surgery. We may suggest combining several of these therapies to achieve optimum results.

Some signs to look for that may indicate a possible dermatological problem include:

  • Scratching more than usual
  • Biting, licking or chewing at a certain area
  • Flaky skin
  • Bald spots or excessive hair loss
  • Unusual bumps or lumps
  • Scabbing

Don’t let your loved one suffer another day of itching or discomfort. Come in for a skin analysis today. Your pet will feel better and so will you!
