Allergies & Dermatology

Has your pet been scratching more than usual lately?

Pet allergies are nothing to sneeze at, and neither are other dermatological disorders that could be causing your loved one to experience everything from minor discomfort to outright pain. At Willowbrook Veterinary Hospital, P.C., we want to help your animal companion achieve optimum external health. Our professional pet allergy and dermatology services are designed to identify and diagnose problems with the skin, ears and feet quickly and accurately so that we can develop the best course of treatment for your companion.

Our goal is to help your loved one feel better as quickly as we can. We’ll start by conducting a comprehensive assessment of the issue at hand. This is accomplished through a physical examination as well as a number of other diagnostic techniques, such as blood work or biopsies. Some of the conditions we can provide assistance with include:

  • Dermatitis
  • Parasites
  • Allergies
  • Infections
  • Hormonal Disorders
  • Tumors
  • Autoimmune Conditions
  • Diseases of the Feet
  • Ear Infections
  • Skin Cancer

Once we’ve reached a definitive diagnosis, we’ll get to work developing a treatment plan that is customized to your pet’s unique needs. We utilize a number of different treatment regimens, depending on the condition and its severity. We may recommend something as simple as applying a topical medication or more advanced care like laser therapy. We may also suggest a combination of multiple treatment options if we feel it will provide your pet with better results.

If a pet allergy is the cause of your companion’s symptoms, the next step will be determining what type of allergy we’re dealing with as well as its triggers. Allergy treatment may involve ongoing care, or it may be something as minor as changing your pet’s diet. We will work with you to determine the best course of action based on your pet’s individual situation.

Signs of a potential dermatological problem in a pet may include:

  • Obsessively biting, chewing or licking the affected area
  • Excessive scratching
  • Unpleasant odor coming from the ears
  • Bald spots
  • Flaky skin
  • Scabs
  • Bumps or lumps on or below the skin

If you notice any of these symptoms, your animal friend may be experiencing an allergy or other skin problem. Don’t wait another moment. Give us a call!
