Pets that itch and scratch and have ear and/or skin disease, are some of the most challenging cases we deal with

Dermatology in veterinary medicine focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of skin conditions and disorders in animals. Just like humans, pets can experience a wide range of skin issues, including allergies, infections, parasites, and autoimmune diseases. A healthy coat and skin are not only essential for your pet’s comfort but also reflect their overall health.

Skin problems can cause discomfort, itching, and pain for your pets. Addressing these issues is crucial to improving their quality of life. Some skin conditions may be symptoms of underlying health problems & detecting and treating these conditions early can prevent further complications. Allergies are common in pets and can result in a variety of skin problems. Our vets can help identify and manage these allergies to provide relief.

Routine dermatological check-ups are essential for preventing skin problems and maintaining your pet’s skin and coat in optimal condition. A healthy coat and skin are not only aesthetically pleasing but also essential for your pet’s overall health and comfort. If you have concerns about your pet’s skin, allergies, or any related issues, don’t hesitate to reach out to our clinic. We have a wide range of treatments including daily medication to monthly injections and will tailor a plan to your pet.

Our team can offer advice on parasite control and now have subscription bundles for your flea and worm purchases!
