Allergies & Dermatology

Beneath your pet’s fur, feathers or scales, there is a layer of skin that is very much like yours, and that skin is susceptible to many of the same conditions that can affect humans. Whether it’s an allergy, an infection or some other dermatological condition, the resulting itchiness and discomfort is something your companion shouldn’t have to live with. The good news is, with the professional pet dermatology services at Pet Med Clinic, he or she doesn’t have to!

Our team is experienced in identifying, diagnosing and treating skin conditions in animals. Through our extensive diagnostic techniques, we’ll get to the bottom of what’s causing your pet’s symptoms so that we can develop the most effective and timely treatment plan. Some of the dermatological issues we can provide assistance with include:

• Allergies
• Infections
• Parasites
• Tumors
• Dermatitis
• Diseases of the Feet
• Ear Infections
• Hormonal Imbalances
• Autoimmune Disorders
• Skin Cancer

Once we’ve determined exactly what type of skin problem we’re dealing with, we’ll develop a customized treatment plan that will reduce and/or eliminate symptoms altogether. Treatment methods may include the use of topical creams, oral or injectable medications, therapy, supplements and, in some cases, surgery. We may recommend one or a combination of these based on the specific condition and its severity.

Some of the signs that your pet may be experiencing a problem with his or her skin, ears or feet include:

• Excessive scratching
• Bald spots
• Hot spots
• Scabbing
• Pawing at, biting or licking the affected area
• Unusual lumps or bumps
• Bad body odor

If you notice your loved one exhibiting any of these signs or symptoms, don’t hesitate to give us a call. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and develop a solution that will help your animal friend live a happier, more comfortable life!
