The most common dermatological issues facing dogs and cats are parasites and allergies. Typical symptoms of these problems include excessive chewing, licking, scratching, or biting of the skin; bumps or rashes; and an uncomfortable restlessness. Both allergies and parasite infestations can lead to secondary infections as well, jeopardizing your pet’s overall health.
Our dermatology services include allergy testing, medical treatment, and products to provide immediate relief and healing, as well as counseling for avoiding future exposure to the offending allergens. Addressing allergies may include a combination of treatments such as antibiotics, antihistamines, steroids, medicated shampoos, and topical medications. We work with each patient and pet owner to provide the maximum relief in a minimum timeframe.
