Allergies & Dermatology

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

There are a number of ailments 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! 

The professional allergy and dermatology services at Clearview Veterinary Hospital will help get your loved one as healthy on the outside as on the inside.

Diagnosing the Problem

To help your pet feel better, we must pinpoint precisely what’s causing the problem. We may be able to identify what’s wrong just by examining your pet, or we may need to investigate further. Blood work, skin scrapings and biopsies help us get the answers we need to move forward with a cure.

Some of the common dermatological issues we 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

With a diagnosis in hand, the next step is determining how to best treat it. Depending on the situation, we may recommend something as simple as applying a topical medication. More complex scenarios may call for a longer-term strategy or involve a combination of treatment methods. 

Signs of a possible skin 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 see any of these signs, it’s time to schedule an appointment. Give us a call. We can help your furry friend live a more comfortable life.
