PET ALLERGIES & DERMATOLOGY
I’ve got you under my skin…
Skin problems in dogs and cats are not only frustrating to the pet but also to the owner. The sound of constant scratching, licking, and chewing can be very unpleasant for the entire family.
Having healthy skin and a healthy hair coat is essential to your pet’s overall well being and comfort. If you notice excessive hair loss or bare patches of fur, dry skin, redness, discharge from the skin, or a foul odor, please contact us for an appointment. If your pet is scratching or biting incessantly, shaking its head or pawing at its ears, this may also be an indication of an underlying skin condition.
Solving skin issues often takes logical, sequential steps to find the underlying causes. Our doctors are equipped at performing a variety of tests to figure out why your pet is uncomfortable. These tests include an external parasite check (mites, fleas), skin cytology looking for bacteria, fungal testing, allergy testing, or even punch biopsy procedures. Whatever the cause, our staff is here to help.
