Allergies & Dermatology

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

There are a number of conditions that can affect a companion animal’s skin, and the symptoms can range from mildly unpleasant to downright painful. You don’t want to see your pet suffer and neither do we! 

Our professional allergy and dermatology services will help get your loved one as healthy on the outside as on the inside.

Diagnosing the Problem

To get your pet some much-need relief, we must first determine precisely what’s causing the problem. We may be able to tell what’s wrong through a cursory exam, or we may need to look deeper. Blood work, skin scrapings and biopsies help us get the answers we need to move forward with a cure.

Some dermatological issues we assist with include:

  • Allergies (food and/or environmental)
  • Infections (acute or chronic)
  • Parasites
  • Dermatitis
  • Hormonal disorders
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Tumors
  • Skin cancer

Developing a Treatment Plan

Once we’ve diagnosed the problem, the next step is determining the best way treat it. Depending on the situation, we may recommend something as simple as applying a topical medication. More complex conditions may require a longer-term strategy or involve a combination of multiple treatment methods. 

Signs of a possible skin problem include:

  • Excessive scratching
  • Scabbing or flaking of the skin
  • Hot spots
  • Shedding more than usual
  • Biting, chewing or licking at the affected area
  • Bumps or lumps on or under the skin

If you notice any of these signs, it’s time to book an appointment. Contact Fairview Drive Pet Hospital. We can help your loved one live a more comfortable life.
