Allergies & Dermatology

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

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

The professional allergy and dermatology services at Clyde’s Animal Clinic will help get your loved one as healthy on the outside as on the inside.

Diagnosing the Problem

To help your best friend feel better, we must identify 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 dig deeper. Blood work, skin scrapings and biopsies help us get the answers we need to move forward with a cure.

Some dermatological issues we provide assistance 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 determining the best way to treat it. Depending on the situation, we may suggest something as simple as applying a topical cream. More complicated conditions may call for 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 Clyde’s Animal Clinic today. We can help your loved one live a more comfortable life.
