Common Skin Conditions in Pets
Our veterinary dermatologists diagnose and treat a wide range of chronic and inflammatory skin conditions in pets including infectious skin diseases, dander-related disorders, congenital skin diseases, hormone-related skin diseases, and more.
What to Expect at Your Pet’s Dermatology Visit
At the start of your pet’s dermatology visit, we will ask a series of questions to get some background information to aid in the diagnosis of their condition. We then use one of the diagnostic options in our laboratory to determine the cause of your pet’s skin condition.
Dog & Cat Dermatology Treatment Plan
Once the cause of your pet's skin condition is determined, we can develop a plan to treat it. Treatment can include a prescription medication or shampoo/conditioner, an ear flush, allergy vaccines, or simply changing your pet’s environment. We mix all pet allergy vaccines in-house, which allows for faster, more affordable refills.
If we determine that long-term treatment is required for an incurable condition, we can work collaboratively with your primary care veterinarian to customize a plan to meet your pet’s needs.
From Happy Pet Owners
“What a wonderful alternative when something happens to your babies outside normal vet hours. They treated us and my kitty like family. Explained everything and fixed him right up. He’s not enjoying the cone, but his stitches look great. Thank you to the whole team!”
