Allergies & Skin Conditions

More and more pet owners are seeking veterinary attention for their pets’ skin problems and/or allergies. Skin problems are a very common occurrence for our pets, and we offer advanced diagnostic and treatment options for skin disorders and allergies.

Your pet might be exhibiting some of the signs of a skin condition or allergy, such as:

  • Continuous scratching
  • Face rubbing

  • Visible hair loss
  • Unpleasant or unusual skin and/or ear odor
  • Unusual discharge from eyes, nose, and/or ears
  • Skin lumps and/or redness
  • Feather plucking or balding
