Could your pet be suffering from a skin problem?

Advanced Diagnostics

The key to effectively treating a dermatological problem is identifying the root cause of symptoms. Of the hundreds of external conditions, most share similar signs, such as chronic itching. To determine precisely what we’re dealing with, we’ll utilize our in-house diagnostic laboratory. Whether it’s a blood test, skin scraping or biopsy, we’ll get to the bottom of the problem quickly and accurately.

We are able to assist with a broad spectrum of skin ailments, including but not limited to:

  • Allergies
  • Dermatitis
  • Infections

  • Tumors
  • Parasites

  • Skin Cancer

Customized Treatment Plans

Once we’ve diagnosed the condition, it’s time to work on a treatment strategy. There are a variety of ways we can address problems with the skin. For instance, topical creams and medications may be effective in eliminating symptoms. Other, more severe conditions may require more aggressive treatment, such as therapy or surgery. Our team is adept at developing individualized plans to suit each patient’s specific needs for optimum results.

Allergy Care

Pet allergies require a few additional steps. First, we must determine what type of allergy your pet is experiencing. This could be either food related or environmental. Then, we must identify the specific triggers that are causing the reactions. Once we’ve gathered this information, we can develop a strategy to address the problem. In many cases, we can manage an allergy through simple lifestyle changes. Other times medical intervention is required. We’ll determine the best course of action based on your pet’s unique situation.

Some of the signs that your loved one may be experiencing a problem with his or her skin or ears include:

  • Constant itching
  • Scabs
  • Excessive shedding or bald spots
  • Bumps or lumps
