ALLERGIES & DERMATOLOGY

Does your pet’s itchy skin have you both feeling uncomfortable?

There are many ailments that can affect a companion animal’s skin, and the symptoms can be quite unpleasant. You don’t want your best friend to suffer and neither do we! 

The professional allergy and dermatology services at 30th Street Animal Hospital will help get your loved one as healthy on the outside as on the inside.

Diagnosing the Problem

To help your pet feel better, we must determine precisely what’s causing the problem. We may be able to discover what’s wrong just by examining your pet, or we may need to investigate further. Blood work, skin scrapings and biopsies help us get the answers we need to move forward with a cure.

Some dermatological issues we can assist with include:

  • Allergies (food and/or environmental)
  • Infections (acute or chronic)
  • Parasites
  • Dermatitis
  • Hormonal disorders
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Tumors
  • Skin cancer

Developing a Treatment Plan

Once the problem has been properly diagnosed, the next step is determining how to best treat it. Depending on the situation, we may suggest something as simple as applying a topical cream. More complex conditions may call for a longer-term strategy or involve a combination of treatment methods. 

Signs of a potential skin disorder include:

  • Excessive scratching
  • Scabbing or flaking of the skin
  • Hot spots
  • Shedding more than usual
  • Biting, chewing or licking at the affected area
  • Bumps or lumps on or under the skin

If you notice any of these signs, it’s time to give 30th Street Animal Hospital a call. We can help your loved one live a more comfortable life.
