How are skin problems detected in my cat or dog?
Detecting a skin problem in your pet involves a thorough examination by our veterinarians. We will visually inspect your pet's skin, looking for any signs of redness, irritation, rashes, lumps, or hair loss. In some cases, we may perform additional diagnostic tests, such as skin scrapings, skin cytology, or allergy testing, to identify the underlying cause of the skin issue. Our goal is to pinpoint the problem accurately, so we can create a personalized treatment plan to address your pet's specific dermatological needs.
Why do pets need dermatology services?
Just like humans, pets can suffer from various skin issues that may cause discomfort and affect their quality of life. Dermatology services are crucial for diagnosing and treating skin conditions such as allergies, infections, rashes, and more. By addressing these issues promptly, we can relieve your pet's discomfort, prevent further complications, and help them enjoy life to the fullest.
How do I know if my pet needs dermatology care?
Watch out for signs like excessive scratching, redness, hair loss, or changes in your pet's coat quality. Persistent ear infections and paw licking can also be indicators of underlying skin problems. If you notice any of these symptoms, it's time to book an appointment with one of our veterinarians. We'll conduct a thorough examination and create a customized treatment plan to address your pet's specific skin needs.
