Has Your Dog or Cat Experienced Hair Loss or Are They Itching and Scratching?

There are many different skin diseases that affect dogs and cats. Some breeds of dogs are prone to certain types of skin diseases or allergies. Many of these diseases look very much alike, with only subtle differences in clinical picture and historical backgrounds. If your pet is showing signs of skin disease (itching, rubbing, licking, biting or scratching), allergies, or alopecia (hair loss), please give us a call. Our veterinarians are trained to evaluate your pet and will pursue a direct and cost effective diagnostic work-up.

Some of the common dermatological conditions we see are:

  • Flea allergy dermatitis
  • Food allergy
  • Bacterial skin diseases
  • Parasitic skin diseases
  • Fungal skin diseases
  • Alopecia
  • Skin Cancer
  • Nutritional skin diseases
  • Endocrine and metabolic skin diseases
  • Drug reactions

If you have an itchy dog or cat, notice any of unusual symptoms in your dog or cat or have any questions, please give us a call.
