Skin diseases are very common in dogs and cats and can be challenging to diagnose and treat without proper knowledge and tests. They can also make your pet miserable. Dermatology is the study of skin diseases, and we are here to help ensure that your pet’s skin stays healthy throughout their life. If your pet has skin issues, we are ready to help you walk through what may seem like a daunting maze of tests and procedures to get to a diagnosis.
Many pets we see have had skin problems for months, or even years; with itchiness, scabbing, or hair loss. We can discuss options that will help diagnose the underlying condition that is causing the skin problems and offer relief. Tests may include allergy testing, looking at skin preparations under a microscope, and possibly even skin biopsies. These results will guide us toward the most effective treatment options for your pet, and what will allow the quickest resolution of your pet’s skin condition.
