WELLNESS & VACCINATIONS

Is your pet’s itchy skin keeping you both up at night?

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

The professional allergy and dermatology services at Royal Oaks Veterinary 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 identify exactly what’s causing the problem. We may be able to determine 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 concerns we 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 we’ve diagnosed the problem, the next step is deciding how to best treat it. Depending on the circumstances, we may recommend 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 possible 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 schedule an appointment. Contact Royal Oaks Veterinary Hospital. We can help your pet live a more comfortable life.
