Pet Allergies

Skin problems can be very concerning and frustrating for pet owners. Having healthy skin and a fur coat is essential to your pet’s overall well-being and comfort.

Solving skin issues often takes logical, sequential steps to uncover the underlying causes. Our doctors are equipped at performing a variety of tests to determine 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. We are here to help you work through these conditions and to help find relief for your pet.

Some common signs to look out for include:

  • Excessive hair loss
  • Bare patches of fur due to over-grooming
  • Dry skin or redness
  • Discharge from the skin
  • Foul odors
  • Excessive licking, scratching or biting of the skin
  • Excessive head shaking or pawing at ears
