Dermatology / Allergic Skin Disease

Appropriate care of skin disease in pets involves effective therapy to alleviate symptoms and provide relief, and reaching a diagnosis to provide long-term solutions for often-frustrating skin and ear infections and disease. We have extensive experience and interest in management of many skin conditions. Especially with allergic skin disease, reaching a definitive diagnosis is extremely important in controlling itching and discomfort. With serum allergy testing and appropriate diets to diagnose and treat food allergies, we often can get to the “root cause” of a problem without repeated visits that treat only symptoms. Also, many patients have skin infections that are also itchy, and contribute to chronic problems that don’t seem to resolve. Diagnosing and treating these infections effectively, including ear infections, can make an immense difference in the success with dermatologic cases.
