Are your pet’s skin problems keeping you both up at night?

There are a variety of different ailments that can affect a companion animal’s skin, and the symptoms can range from minor discomfort to severe pain. You don’t want your pet to suffer and neither do we! 

The Corner Vet’s professional allergy and dermatology services will help get your pet as healthy on the outside as on the inside.

Diagnosing the Problem

To help your pet feel better, we must first determine the precise cause of the problem. We may be able to tell what’s wrong just by examining your pet, or we may need to dig deeper. Blood work, skin scrapings and biopsies help us gather the answers we need to move forward with a maintenance/management plan).

Some dermatological issues we routine 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 diagnosed the problem, the next step is deciding how to best treat it. Depending on the circumstances, we may recommend something as simple as applying a topical cream. More complex situations may call for 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 contact The Corner Vet and schedule an appointment. We’ll help your pet live a more comfortable life.
