Is your pet’s itchy skin driving you both crazy?

There are a number of ailments that can affect a companion animal’s skin, and the symptoms can be unpleasant. You don’t want your pal to suffer and neither do we!

The professional allergy and dermatology services at Small Animal Medicine & Surgery will help get your loved one as healthy on the outside as on the inside.

Diagnosing the Problem

To help your best friend feel better, we must identify precisely what’s causing the problem. We may be able to determine what’s wrong just by examining your pet, or we may need to investigate further. Blood work, skin scrapings and biopsies enable us to get the answers we need to move forward with a cure.

Some dermatological conditions 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 to treat it. Depending on the situation, we may recommend something as simple as applying a topical medication. More complex conditions may call for a longer-term strategy or involve a combination of multiple treatment methods. 

Signs of a possible skin concern 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. Call Small Animal Medicine & Surgery. We can help your loved one live a more comfortable life.
