Allergies & Dermatology

Slide – BG

Does your pet’s itchy skin have you both losing sleep?

There are many conditions that can affect a companion animal’s skin, and the symptoms can range from unpleasant to outright painful. You don’t want your loved one to suffer and neither do we! 

The professional allergy and dermatology services at Fairfield Animal Hospital are designed to help get your pet as healthy on the outside as on the inside.

Diagnosing the Problem

To provide your pet with some much-needed relief, we must first identify 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 gather the answers we need to move forward with a cure.

Some dermatological issues 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

With a diagnosis in hand, the next step is deciding how to best treat it. Depending on the situation, we may recommend something as simple as applying a topical cream. More complex conditions may require a longer-term strategy or involve a combination of multiple treatment methods. 

Some possible signs of a skin problem may 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 Fairfield Animal Hospital a call. We can help your loved one live a more comfortable life.
