Allergies & Dermatology

Slide - BG

Is your pet’s constant scratching keeping you both up at night?

There are many 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 Lapel Animal Clinic 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 determine precisely what’s causing the problem. We may be able to tell what’s wrong just by examining your pet, or we may need to investigate further. Blood work, skin scrapings and biopsies enable us get the answers we need to move forward with a cure.
Some dermatological concerns 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 recommend 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 see any of these signs, it’s time to schedule an appointment. Call the experienced team at Lapel Animal Clinic. We can help your loved one live a more comfortable life.
