Dermatology

Skin problems are a very common occurrence for both dogs and cats. They can be caused by a variety of things including allergies, hormonal disorders, infections or parasites such as fleas and ticks, and environmental sensitivities.  Skin issues can be difficult to treat and should not be ignored as they can lead to secondary infections.


Symptoms of possible skin issues include:

1.  Bare patches of skin
2.  Excessive scratching
3.  Missing hair
4.  Scabs/scales
5.  Redness
6.  Inflammation
7.  Lumps/bumps

To diagnose a skin issue, there are a few different diagnostics that we can perform. They include:

1.  Skin scraping
2.  Skin cytology
3.  Biopsy
4.  Needle aspirate

Schedule an appointment with us today if you notice any abnormalities with your pet’s skin or hair coat.
