Pet Dermatology

White Persian CatOur veterinary team is experienced in the diagnosis of many dermatological conditions. We begin with an exam to determine the appropriate course of action and explore a variety of potential causes, such as:

  • Environmental allergies (grass or pollen)
  • Food allergies
  • Parasites (fleas, ticks, mites)

In the event of a parasite infestation, we can provide a medicated bath through our grooming service. Our on-site pet pharmacy also carries an assortment of preventives to protect your pet and your family.

Based on the results of your pet’s physical exam, further allergy testing maybe required, such as:

  • Blood test
    Identifies common allergens
  • Food trial
    Places your pet on a strict prescription diet to rule out a food allergy
  • Skin scratch test
    Performed by referral to a veterinary dermatologist for advanced cases
