Does your pet have a skin condition or allergy? Our team is here to help.

Veterinary dermatology is a specialized field of veterinary medicine that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of skin, hair, and nail disorders in animals. If your pet is facing a skin condition or allergy issue, it’s crucial to find a team with the appropriate training and experience to provide them with the best possible care.

Veterinary dermatology covers a wide range of conditions, including allergies, infections, autoimmune diseases, and tumors. Common symptoms of skin disorders in animals include itching, redness, hair loss, and scaly or crusty skin. We will thoroughly examine your pet, including taking a skin scraping or biopsy if necessary, to determine the underlying cause of the symptoms.

Cat and dog dermatology are important subfields of veterinary dermatology. Cats and dogs are both prone to various skin conditions, many of which are similar to those seen in humans. For example, both cats and dogs can develop allergies to food, fleas, and other environmental factors. In addition, both species are prone to certain skin infections, such as ringworm and yeast infections. A veterinary team with experience in cat and dog dermatology will be able to diagnose and treat these conditions effectively.

Treatment for skin disorders in animals may include medications, such as antibiotics or anti-inflammatory drugs, as well as changes in diet, grooming, or environmental management. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to remove tumors or cysts. We will work with you to develop a treatment plan tailored to your pet’s specific needs.

It’s important to note that some skin conditions in animals can be chronic and may require long-term management. Our experienced team will strategize the appropriate plan your pet needs for ongoing care, including regular check-ups, blood tests, or other diagnostic tests. This will help ensure their condition is well-controlled and that they can live a happy, healthy life.

Veterinary dermatology is a specialized field essential for properly caring for animals with skin disorders. If you have a cat or dog with skin condition symptoms, please don’t hesitate to consult with our team to ensure that your pet receives the treatment that is right for them.
