Allergies & Dermatology

Slide - BG

Is your pet’s constant scratching keeping you both up at night?

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

Dixie Road Pet Clinic’s professional allergy and dermatology services are designed to help keep your loved one as healthy on the outside as on the inside.

Diagnosing the Problem

To give your pet much-needed relief, we must first identify the underlying problem. We may be able to tell what’s wrong by simply 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 dermatological issues we routinely 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 cream. More complicated conditions may call for a longer-term strategy or involve a combination of several treatment methods. 

Signs of a possible dermatological 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. Contact Dixie Road Pet Clinic. We can help your loved one live a more comfortable life.
