Allergies & Dermatology
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 symptoms can range from minor discomfort to outright pain. You don’t want your best friend to suffer and neither do we!
Luv-N-Care Animal Hospital’s professional allergy and dermatology services will help get your loved one as healthy on the outside as on the inside.
Diagnosing the Problem
To help your pet feel better, we must first determine precisely what’s causing the problem. We may be able to identify the issue just by examining your pet, or we may need to investigate further. Blood work, skin scrapings and biopsies help us get the answers we need to move forward with a cure.
Some dermatological concerns we assist with include:
- Allergies (food and/or environmental)
- Infections (acute or chronic)
- Hormonal disorders
- Autoimmune diseases
- Skin cancer
Developing a Treatment Plan
Once we’ve diagnosed the problem, the next step is determining the most effective way to treat it. Depending on the circumstances, we may recommend something as simple as applying a topical cream. More complex situations 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 notice any of these signs, it’s time to schedule an appointment. Give Luv-N-Care Animal Hospital a call. We can help your loved one live a more comfortable life.
