Is your pet’s itchy skin keeping you both up at night?

There are many ailments that can affect a companion animal’s skin, and the experience can be downright miserable. You don’t want your pal to suffer and neither do we!

The professional allergy and dermatology services at Compassionate Care Veterinary Hospital will help get your loved one as healthy on the outside as on the inside.

Diagnosing the Problem

To give your pet some much needed relief, we must first determine precisely what’s causing the problem. We may be able to figure out what’s wrong just by examining your pet, or we may need to investigate further. Blood work, skin scrapings and biopsies provide the answers we need to move forward with a cure.

Some of the many 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 deciding how to best treat it. Depending on the circumstances, we may recommend something as simple as applying a topical cream. More complex conditions may call for a longer-term strategy or involve a combination of 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 spot any of these red flags, it’s time to schedule an appointment. Give us a call. We can help your animal companion live a more comfortable life.
