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

There are a wide variety of ailments that can affect a companion animal’s skin, and the symptoms can be unpleasant. You don’t want your pal to suffer and neither do we! 

Hiawasee Animal Hospital’s professional allergy and dermatology services will help get your loved one as healthy on the outside as on the inside.

Diagnosing the Problem

To give your pet some much-needed relief, we must first identify precisely what’s causing the problem. We may be able to tell 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 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 we’ve pinpointed the problem, the next step is determining 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 more than one treatment method. 

Signs of a possible skin problem 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. Give Hiawasee Animal Hospital a call. We can help your loved one live a more comfortable life.
