ALLERGIES & DERMATOLOGY

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

There are many ailments that can affect a cat or dog’s skin, and the symptoms can be unpleasant. You don’t want your best friend to suffer and neither do we! 

The professional allergy and dermatology services at Cross Creek Animal Hospital will help get your companion as healthy on the outside as on the inside.

Diagnosing the Problem

To help your loved one feel better, we must identify precisely what’s causing the problem. We may be able to figure out what’s wrong through a physical exam, or we may need to investigate further. Tests such as blood work, skin scrapings and biopsies help us get 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

Once we’ve determined what the problem is, the next step is deciding how to best treat it. Depending on the situation, we may suggest something as simple as applying a topical cream. More complex conditions may require a longer-term strategy or involve a combination of treatment methods. 

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 book an appointment. Contact Cross Creek Animal Hospital today. We can help your loved one live a more comfortable life.
