Allergies & Dermatology

Is itchy skin driving your pet crazy?

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

The professional allergy and dermatology services at Moore 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 first identify the exact cause of the problem. We may be able to reach a diagnosis 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 problems 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 pinpointed the problem, the next step is determining how to best treat it. Depending on the situation, we may prescribe something as simple as a topical cream. More complex conditions may require a longer-term strategy or involve a combination of treatment methods. 

Signs of a possible skin condition 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 the dedicated professionals at Moore Animal Hospital a call. We can help your loved one live a more comfortable life.
