Pet Allergies and Dermatology

Hair loss and constant scratching can be an indication of fleas, food allergies, or other more serious skin conditions. We provide specialized dermatological options to all of our patients. When your pet is experiencing allergies, do you know how to identify them? With our pets, allergy symptoms are much different than the symptoms we experience as humans. They can include:

  • Acne
  • Bald patches and hair loss
  • Dandruff
  • Ear infections
  • Hot spots or sores
  • Itchiness
  • Rashes
  • Unusual or foul smells from the skin, hair coat, ears

If you notice any of these symptoms in your pet, talk with our team right away. We don’t want your pet to be uncomfortable, and we have a number of allergy relief options for them.

Allergy Testing for Pets

When a potential allergy issue is brought to our attention, we will perform testing to help determine the cause of your pet’s symptoms. We can perform a variety of testing including skin scrapes, cultures, and food trials depending on your pet’s condition.
