Did you know that dogs and cats can suffer from many of the same skin problems that we humans do, including allergies and infections? These conditions, if left untreated, can ultimately impact your pet’s quality of life. The good thing is, Noah’s Stop 11 Animal Hospital offers professional pet dermatology services that can help.
Our doctors have received specialized training and are experienced at identifying, diagnosing and treating a wide variety of skin disorders, including those of the ears, nose and feet. Some of the dermatological disorders we can provide assistance with include:
- Allergies (food, parasitic, environmental)
- Skin infections (bacterial, yeast/fungal)
- Diseases of the foot
- Autoimmune skin disorders
- Endocrine/metabolic skin diseases
- Ear disease
- Skin cancers
Once we’ve determined the cause of your pet’s skin problem, we’ll get to work developing a customized plan to address that problem. We utilize a broad range of treatment techniques, including oral medications, topical products, supplements, therapy, and in some cases, surgery. We may also recommend some changes to your pet’s home environment. Oftentimes, just making simple changes to things like diet, and removing certain items from the home that may be acting as irritants can reduce or eliminate the problem without the need for medical intervention.
Some of the signs that your pet may exhibit if he or she is dealing with a skin problem include:
- Excessive scratching
- Biting or gnawing at the skin or paws
- Hot spots
- Dry, flaky skin
If you’ve noticed your companion has been showing one or more of these symptoms, don’t make them suffer another moment! Let our professional pet dermatology services help your pet live a more comfortable life!
